The comic We’re Still at War, a collection of thirteen testimonies by people who experienced a totalitarian regime – either Nazi rule or communism, will be presented at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival in Kendal. Two of the authors of the comic, Tomáš Kučerovský and Toy_Box, will be in conversation with Paul Gravett on Saturday, 13 October at 2.30pm.
Kučerovský and Toy_Box will also be presenting the book at the British Library in London on Tuesday, 16 October at 7.15pm. The Czech authors will be joined by German-American author and illustrator Nora Krug (Heimat), to find out what drew them to tell personal and collective stories in graphic form.
The events are organised in collaboration with the Czech Centre London and Karolinum Press, supported by the Czech Literary Centre, a section of the Moravian Library.
