Mansfield & Me: A Graphic Memoir

Thursday, 6th October 2016

It was our pleasure to host the launch for this much awaited graphic memoir that sews together Laing’s life experiences with those of Katherine Mansfield. Family and friends filled a 100+ crowd. Fergus Barrowman described the fresh engagement with what we know about Mansfield, and the unearthing of lesser-known details of her life. Helen Lehndorf launched the book, and Sarah explained a little of the journey she had taken to write Mansfield & Me. Sarah’s husband, Jonathan Lance Lane, closed with a song.
