Quentin Blake and France

Kings Place - 90 York Way, London N1 9AG

LP117_001-RV_web.jpgThe Rimbaud and Verlaine Foundation presents a special event featuring Quentin Blake, the UK’s best loved children’s illustrator.

A great lover of all things French, Blake has worked with many French writers and illustrators, and has published two books with the French publisher Gallimard, including an illustrated selection of his favourite French poems that contains Rimbaud’s poem Le Dormeur du Val.

Quentin Blake will be joined on stage by special guests, including poets, illustrators and musicians, for a unique exploration of French poetry and illustration. Get on your metaphorical bicyclette and bring red wine, baguette and Camembert for a special illustrator’s guide to the landscape and culture of France. 

Tickets cost £12.50 and are available from the Kings Place website
