Literary Event, Thu 7 Nov 2019


Orleans House Gallery


Whittaker Ave, Richmond,


Hear from two award-winning authors, who together will debunk myths, challenge assumptions and offer fresh insight into what it means to be mad. And what it means to be human…

In The Heartland, Nathan Filer, mental health nurse and author of the bestselling The Shock of the Fall takes us on a journey into the psychiatric wards he once worked on and invites us to spend time with world-leading experts, and extraordinary people sharing their true stories about living with schizophrenia.

Tonight, Nathan will be joined by psychiatrist and author Joanna Cannon. In her powerful new memoir, Breaking and Mending, she tells her own story of being a junior doctor, and the stories of others like her, facing the extraordinary and sometimes daunting landmarks: from the first shock of holding another person’s life in your hands, to moments of crisis and loss.

Joanna is the author of the bestselling The Trouble with Goats and Sheep.
