Event description
Scarlett Curtis, Jamie Windust and Guest will be discussing 'It's Not OK To Feel Blue (and Other Lies)'.

About this Event

Blackwell's is thrilled to be welcoming Scarlett Curtis, editor of 'It's Not OK To Feel Blue and Other Lies' to discuss the inspirational collection of stories and essays on mental health. Scarlett will be joined by Jamie Windust and a fellow guest speaker who have contributed to the collection, with the final speaker to be announced soon. Join us for this unmissable event!

After the success of 'Feminists Don’t Wear Pink (and other lies)', Style columnist and Pink Protest founder Scarlett Curtis returns with another insightful anthology, this time examining mental health. 'It’s Not OK to Feel Blue (and other lies)', is a collection of essays, stories and poems from over 70 inspirational people. It is a call to arms to tackle the mental illness epidemic, and a reassuring voice that tells readers they are not alone.

Join Scarlett Curtis and contributors as they discuss their individual pieces in the collection and consider what their mental health means to them.

‘This is the book I needed when I was younger. May this be a leap forward in the much-needed conversation around mental health.’ - Jameela Jamil

‘Reading this book made me feel more normal about the things I feel sometimes, whether it’s for a reason or just because that’s how I woke up that day. It’s a great book; however you’re feeling, it’ll help.’ - Ed Sheeran'This is the freshest, most honest collection of writings about mental health that I've read... searing wit, blinding passion, bleeding emotion and a fantastic, heroic, glorious refusal to lie down and take it' - Stephen Fry
