Event description
Kate Mosse discusses An Extra Pair of Hands: A story of caring, ageing and everyday acts of love in conversation with Rosie Boycott

About this event

Join us at 5x15 for an open, honest and timely discussion with best-selling novelist Kate Mosse as she tells her personal story of finding herself as a carer in middle age: first, helping her mother look after her beloved father through Parkinson's, then supporting her mother in widowhood, and finally as 'an extra pair of hands' for her 90-year-old mother-in-law.

As our population ages, more and more of us find ourselves caring for parents and loved ones – some 8.8 million people in the UK. Kate’s new book An Extra Pair of Hands is about the gentle heroism of our carers, small everyday acts of tenderness, and finding joy in times of crisis. It's about juggling priorities, mind-numbing repetition, about guilt and powerlessness, about grief, and the solace of nature when we're exhausted or at a loss. It is also about celebrating older people, about learning to live differently – and think differently about ageing.

'An Extra Pair of Hands is beautiful, heartbreaking, honest and ultimately uplifting story of carers, and by carers I mean women. I read it in one sitting, and will be pressing into the hands of everyone I know. A celebration of ageing, womanhood and what love really means.' - Christie Watson
