The British illustrator Karrie Fransman has worked with media outlets including The Guardian, The Times, Time Out, The Telegraph, BBC, The New Statesman and the Arts Council. Together with her partner, Jonathan Plackett, Fransman has created the acclaimed Gender Swapped Fairy Tales (2021) and Gender Swapped Greek Myths (2022), which re-write some of the great classics of children’s fiction and Greek mythology, changing the gender of the characters. These authors will introduce us to the story of a king who pricks his finger while sewing; of Icara and her mother, who fly too close to the sun; of a heroine who, while roaming the high seas trying to get home, is seduced by male sirens, and much more. Fransman will talk to the BBC journalist Alejandro Millán.

The Arequipa artist and illustrator Rosita Charaja, better known as Unicornio Azul (“Blue Unicorn”), presents her first book, El mar de las almas, created together with the Chilean Nathalia CR. The book is created through dreams that reveal encounters in past lives, as a relationship of love is built up. The story explores the relationship between a distant past and the present, the development of rights over the course of history, and forms of love outside the heteronormative. In conversation with Omar Zevallos.
