Meeting with Camille Vercken, thoroughbred breeder and comic book writer, around the "Thoroughbred" saga. Two volumes published in 2019 by Glénat editions: "Red bird", volume 1 and "Snow", volume 2. The drawings are signed Rodolphe and Michel Faure, also illustrator of the black stallion series.

Director of the Federation of Breeders for ten years, Camille Vercken found her vocation reading "The Black Stallion" in her youth. Today, again thanks to this mythical literary series, she creates her own "Thoroughbred" comic, the very first comic in history dedicated to racing. Two volumes with two true stories of horses and love where intrigues intersect. The first, that of a thoroughbred in Zimbabwe in a context of great tensions ahead of the election of President Mugabe, the second takes place in Connemara, Ireland.

The meeting will be followed by a signing session.
