Event description

Description

How do you make a virus a hero? How would you describe the journey through the human digestive system from the perspective of bacteria? If the immune system were an army, how would you write the war? When telling these stories, how important is conveying the science compared to having a great narrative?

Join Author Ailsa Wild in this workshop as we look at The Invisible War for inspiration, examine text in relationship to image in the graphic novel, and write a science adventure of our own.

'The Invisible War: a tale on two scales' is a ground-breaking new comic book created by a team of Victorian artists, scientists, writers and historians. Aimed at both teenagers and adults, the story combines stunning artwork and cutting-edge science to take readers on a unique journey into the human body. Set partly around the muddy trenches of World War One, and partly in the mucus-lined trenches of a nurse's large intestine, the story describes a vast, unseen world populated by bacteria and viruses, where microscopic battles between ancient enemies are waged on a daily basis. On the Library Mezzanine Floor. Aimed at ages 11+
