British cartoonist and illustrator Tom Gauld has been named as a participant of this year's non/fiction Book Fair. His work is regularly published in The Guardian, The New York Times, and New Scientist. His comic books “Goliath,” “You're All Just Jealous of My Jetpack,” and “Mooncop” will be published this autumn by St. Petersburg-based publishing house Boomkinga and will be available at the fair. A workshop for children and a personal public talk will be held on Dec. 4. Gauld will also take part in the big discussion: “What does it mean to be British today?” at the Central House of Artists near Moscow's Gorky Park.
The United Kingdom will be this year’s “Country of Honour” at Moscow's 18th International Book Fair. This will be the culmination of the year-long program of the U.K.-Russia Year of Language and Literature 2016 curated by the British Council. Visitors can choose from a program of literary events featuring leading British novelists, historians, film and theater scriptwriters, translators, and illustrators.
