Lights, Planets, People! by Molly Naylor & Lizzy Stewart – LAUNCH
October 8 - 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Wahey! Friend of the shop Molly naylor has an amazing new graphic novel coming out – it’s based on her award-winning play (did you see it?) and illustrated by the incredibly talented Lizzy Stewart.
Join us at The Book Hive for a suitably lively launch party! And just in case you need some convincing, here’s the blurb…
Renowned astronomer, Maggie Hill, is due to deliver a lecture about her astonishing career to a group of science students. She’s also attending her first ever therapy session in order to overcome some debilitating anxiety. Plus, Maggie’s heartbroken… but she doesn’t know this yet. Through facing first herself and then a group of terrifyingly ambitious and canny young women, Maggie is forced to share her greatest achievements and admit her biggest regrets.
Based on Molly Naylor’s award-winning play, Lights, Planets, People! is a beautifully illustrated graphic novel about failure, legacy, mental health and communication – both interpersonal and intergalactic.
It’ll be out of this world! (Sorry…)
