Graphic writers Kate Charlesworth and Una talk with Una McCormack about their different visions and stories about the North of England. Online event.

In A Girls Guide to Sensible Footwear, Kate Charlesworth presents a glorious pageant of LGBT history, as she takes us on a PRIDE march from the 1950s to the present day. Sensible Footwear is the first graphic history charting lesbian life from 1950 to the present. It is a stunning, personal, graphic memoir that shows Kate, growing up in Yorkshire, trying to find role models wherever she could.

Una’s Eve tells the story of a young woman born into dramatic social change in the near future, brought about by environmental disaster and deep-rooted prejudice, in her Yorkshire community. Eve grows up in a loving family that is increasingly threatened by a society which seems to be sleepwalking into totalitarianism. After a catastrophe that changes everything, Eve must set off on her own, over the wild Yorkshire moors, to try to find a new way to live and love.

This event is hosted by Dr Una McCormack, a New York Times bestselling science fiction author, who is passionate about women’s writing, science fiction, and helping people find their words and voices.
