Mary & Brian Talbot: The Red Virgin and the Vision of Utopia
This is the third collaboration by graphic novel pioneers Bryan and Mary Talbot. It tells the amazing life of Louise Michel, the revolutionary feminist dubbed ‘The Red Virgin of Montmartre’.
Utopian, anarchist, teacher, orator and poet - she was decades ahead of her time. She fought on the barricades during the Paris Commune of 1871. After its defeat, when she was deported to a penal colony, she supported the indigenous population against French colonial oppression. Bryan and Mary will talk about Michel and about their other work.
