I’m sure that many writers are the shy and retiring type, but Jeanette Winterson is not one of them! If you’ve seen her ‘live’, you will know that she is every bit as entertaining and provocative as her novels and her truly great memoir ‘Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?’
On Tuesday 11th of June (7:30 to 8:30 pm), Jeanette Winterson will be giving a live performance of her latest novel Frankissstein - described as ‘a dazzling reanimation of Shelley’s novel’. The event is part of CogX2019: The Festival of AI and Emerging Technology. And from the sound of it, the novel’s themes are entirely appropriate to the conference. According to the programme notes: ‘Hard science and dreamy Romanticism combine in a meditation on the responsibilities of creation and the possibilities of AI’.
** A friend of mine is one of CogX’s organisers and she has generously offered free tickets to this event to my Bookstagram friends and fellow Winterson enthusiasts. Follow this link for free tickets: https://ti.to/cogx/2019/discount/CX19jeanettewintersonguest
If you have any problems of questions, please DM me. The event takes place at Granary Square, just a few minutes walk from the King’s Cross station. Hope to see some of you there!
@Mill_NY takes you behind the project for the #StrangerThings Season 2 @Facebook filters that transform fans into The Demogorgon and journey into the Upside Down. You can access these camera effects by tapping on the camera icon on the top left corner of the Facebook app or by swiping right from their News Feeds to open the Facebook Camera.
#MillNY Art Director and Senior Designer Pierce Gibson @piercegibson comments, "The world of Stranger Things offered so many unique possibilities in shaping an AR narrative- it took several iterations and rounds of concepting to decide on the best approach that suited the Facebook Camera Effect platform. Mainly, we wanted to find the best way to place the user front and center, as the driving force of the narrative."
