We had a great time meeting graphic novelist Hannah Berry at London Book Fair back in March. The International Literature Showcase writer, who will also appear alongside Stephen Collins at our Satire & Protest event at Norfolk & Norwich Festival, spoke about her latest book Livestock, published on 26 May.
Hannah Berry is a Brighton-based graphic novelist, writer, illustrator and occasional lecturer. She was Booktrust’s seventh Online Writer in Residence and has been a regular tutor for the Arvon Foundation’s Graphic Novel Writing course. Her first graphic novel Britten and Brülightly, begun while studying an illustration degree at the University of Brighton, was published by Jonathan Cape in 2008. It has been translated into Italian, Dutch, Serbian and French, with the French edition chosen as part of the official selection for the 2010 Angoulême International Comics Festival. Her second graphic novel Adamtine has just been published, also by Cape and she is currently working on a third, Livestock. She has exhibited work in solo and collective exhibitions and written for publications including New Statesman, Dazed & Confused and Huffington Post UK. Website
