Authors Live: Bessora and Sarah Ardizzone

We were delighted to welcome author Bessora and translator Sarah Ardizzone to Authors Live for a conversation about their timely graphic novel Alpha: Abidjan to Gare du Nord, illustrated by Barroux.

Bessora and Sarah introduced us to the story of Alpha, a man who makes a desperate journey from North Africa to Europe, and spoke about how they approached this important story in the context of the current refugee crisis.

Sarah also gave us a fascinating insight into the process of translating the story from French into English.

Tune in to find out more about Alpha's story and hear Bessora and Sarah answering questions from our studio audience.

A full transcript of this event is available here.
