Join author Michael Barrett for a fascinating talk on the making of his bestselling graphic novel: Preston North End - The Rise of the Invincibles. This illustrated talk looks at the early days of football; who the Invincibles of PNE were; why Michael wanted to make the book; and covers in detail the process of producing the pages with Roy of the Rovers iconic artist David Sque. This is the story of the Invincibles as you have never seen it before! Told throughout in comic book-style, the artwork has been produced by David Sque who illustrated Roy of the Rovers during the 1970s and 80s, with the writing and story is by Michael Barrett. The book has the full backing of PNE, with a foreword kindly provided by former player and now BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson.
Michael will be on hand afterwards to answer any questions and sell and sign copies of his book.
