Event description

Description

Join us for an evening with Joanna Cannon, author of The Trouble with Goats and Sheep, as she talks about her new medical memoir Breaking and Mending.

In this powerful memoir, Joanna Cannon tells her story as a junior doctor in visceral, heart-rending snapshots.

We walk with her through the wards, facing extraordinary and daunting moments daily: from attending your first post-mortem to telling a patient you’re sorry. These moments teach her that emotional care and understanding mental health can be as critical as restoring a heartbeat.

In a profession where weakness remains a taboo, this moving, beautifully written and candid book brings to life the vivid, human stories of doctors, patients and the hospital, and shows us why we need to take better care of those who care for us.

Joanna Cannon is the author of The Trouble with Goats and Sheep, which was published in fifteen languages and the Sunday Times bestselling Three Things About Elsie, which was longlisted for the Women’s Prize. Her novels have sold over half a million copies in the UK alone.


Tickets for this event are £3 and can be purchased online.
