Under the Covers with Carla Valentine
Thu 27 April 2017, 19:30 – 21:00 BST
Join us for a very special 'Under the Covers' event where Ella Berthoud, resident bibliotherapist at The House of St Barnabas, will be joined by author, pathologist, and award winning museum curator Carla Valentine.
We go under the covers to discuss Carla's new book, Past Mortems, where she reveals what life is really like for a pathologist, as well as shedding light on our past, present and future attitudes towards death. Carla currently works as Technical Curator at Bart’s Pathology Museum, with over five thousand specimens in her care, from teeth to toes.
Under the Covers is a monthly literary evening, which gets 'close up and personal' with the most exciting contemporary authors, musicians and artists. Past guests include David Nicholls, Polly Vernon and Hans Ulrich Obrist.
Your ticket for Under the Covers costs £10 and includes a copy of Carla's book and a glass of wine, to be enjoyed in the Garden Room after the event.
