Update: Go York event (Jesse Toksvig-Stewart); York Pride ideation


Go York: Jesse Toksvig-Stewart presents “Framing their future – realising a dream through capturing images and determination”

As part of the special series of Go York events celebrating the 175th anniversary of York St John’s foundation (then The Diocesan College in York), Film and Television Production graduate Jesse Toksvig-Stewart will talk about the development of Ugly Duck Books and its first creation: a broadly inclusive child development capturing book.

The book, My Amazing Family and Me, was in part inspired by Jesse’s own upbringing as the daughter of Sandi Toksvig and her then-wife Peta Stewart. According to the Guardian, it “is designed to include every sort of family, and makes no presumptions about who the parents are, how long the child has been with them or how much they know about [their] background”.

The event will take place at 18:00 on Wednesday 9 March (preceded by a reception at 17:30). You can find out more via the Go York events page and book tickets via Eventbrite.
