12.30-1.30 Step Aside Pops: The Art of Kate Beaton 
Shakespeare Centre

Since Kate Beaton appeared on the comics scene in 2007 her cartoons have become fan-favourites and gathered an enormous following, appearing in The New Yorker, Harper and the LA Times to name but a few. Her website, Hark! A Vagrant, receives on average 1.2 million hits a month. Praised for their expression, intelligence and comic timing, her cartoons are best-known for their light touch on historical and literary topics. Her new book, Step Aside Pops, takes a side-swipe at great men and women of history including Heathcliff, Wonder-Woman, Feminists and Hunks. Her latest project involves a fat pony… need we say more?

Come and meet Kate (and the fat pony) where she will be in conversation (and maybe drawing a bit too) with Alex Fitch of Resonance FM.

Tickets: £8
Satire Theme
In partnership with Toronto Comic Art Festival
