@ Durham City

05 October 2018

6pm - 7pm

£4 (including drink on arrival)

In 2017 Durham Book Festival commissioned acclaimed graphic novelist Una to create a graphic novel inspired by the people of Durham and its landscapes. Una spent time at the Just for Women Centre in Stanley and the women she met there inspired her book, Cree, which we’re delighted to launch at Durham Book Festival 2018.

Cree is the story of Joy, a woman from Durham who finds solace, support and ultimately hope from attending the women’s Cree group in Stanley. Una’s beautifully drawn landscapes and characters reflect the spirit of County Durham. This special launch event is an opportunity to meet Una and discover this book for the first time.
