Authors visiting Cardiff Met for World Book Day

Two well-known and award winning authors – Graham Rawle and Catherine Fisher – will be visiting Cardiff Met to talk about their work.  The event is open to all students and staff at Cardiff Metropolitan University.

 

Dark supernatural fantasy: Catherine Fisher

Catherine Fisher is a prolific novelist of gripping, dark fantasy and supernatural adventures which have enthralled many of her fans and readers.  Her novels include The Snow Walker’s Trilogy, The Obsidian Mirror and Incarceron.

A former primary school teacher and archaeologist, the stories and worlds she creates have been described as ‘outstanding’ (The Times), ‘exciting’ (School Librarian) and ‘thrilling’ (Daily Mail).   Her latest book in The Obsidian Mirror series, The Speed of Darkness, was launched on February 11th.

Catherine will be talking about her work and imagined worlds in Cyncoed Library on Tuesday 8th March from 12-1pm with free food and drink.  Book your place via educationlibrarian@cardiffmet.ac.uk or Event Brite.

Innovative book illustration: Graham Rawle

Graham Rawle is a writer and collage artist whose visual work incorporates illustration, design, photography and installation.

His comic strip series, Lost Consonants ran in The Guardian from 1990 to 2005.  He has also created many critically acclaimed and award winning illustrated books using an innovative and through provoking mix of text and collage – including Woman’s World which was made entirely from fragments of text and images clipped from 1950s/1960s woman’s magazines.

See Graham on Friday 4th March 11am-12pm at N Block, Llandaff Campus with free food and drink.  To book your place, contact rsiekkinen@cardiffmet.ac.uk or book via Event Brite
