From the team that created the first graphic novel to win the 2012 Costa Biography Award (Dotter of her Father’s Eyes) comes a gripping inside story about the campaign for votes for women.

Sally Heathcote: Suffragette is Mary and Bryan Talbot’s tale of loyalty, love and courage, set against the vividly realised backdrop of Edwardian Britain. It follows the fortunes of a maid-of-all-work swept up in the feminist militancy of the era.

Hear Mary and Bryan talk about the process of writing a graphic novel and how the imagery of acclaimed illustrator, Kate Charlesworth, helped the era come to life.

This event is part of The Lives of Great Women Writers, a day long literary festival.
