Reinterpreting Women’s Stories using the Surreal and the Mythological

18:00 — 19:00
McManus Cafe, Dundee

Amruta and Karrie will be discussing their graphic novels and the use of the magical and the strange in their work. Amruta is currently working on a reinterpretation of the classic Indian tale of The Mahabharata called Adi Parva, whilst Karrie’s debut graphic novel The House That Groaned has been described by Paul Gravett as ‘absurdist magical realism’.

Event chaired by Peggy Hughes (Literary Dundee).

Part of the 2014 Commonwealth Culture Programme.

A series of free evening literature events by Scottish PEN which unites Commonwealth and Scottish writers along the route of the Queens Baton Relay across Scotland. Every event will examine a movement in Commonwealth history and allow the authors to discuss their relative works. This project is supported by the 2014 Commonwealth Games Culture funding from Creative Scotland.
