Event Description

Matilda Tristram was 17 weeks pregnant and looking forward to having her first baby when she discovered she had cancer.
 
Her touching graphic memoir, Probably Nothing, published by Penguin, starts when Matilda was diagnosed and ends when her chemotherapy finished in October last year. Recording the awkward conversations, the highs and lows of treatment, and the reality of still having to queue too long for croissants, Matilda captures her experiences with style and warmth. Along the way she cherishes the small details of life, and learns not to sweat the big things.
 
Her beautiful and boisterous son James was born without complications.
 
Matilda studied animation at the Royal College of Art, graduating in 2008. She’s worked as a children's writer, lecturer and filmmaker. She was co-writer on two animated BBC TV shows for CBeebies with Ragdoll Productions, The Adventures of Abney and Teal and Dipdap (so parents have a LOT to thank her for!)
 
Please join BGBS for a special evening with Matilda when she will read from her wonderful book.
Refreshments will be available.
Tickets are just £3, which is redeemable on the book.
