The Heartland: Nathan Filer in conversation

The Heartland: Nathan Filer in conversation

6th June 2019
 7pm – 8pm

Join award-winning author Nathan Filer (The Shock of the Fall) for a frank and honest discussion on how to find new ways of thinking about mental health, and his new book The Heartland: Finding and Losing Schizophrenia.

In conversation with journalist and author Cathy Rentzenbrink (A Manual for Heartache), Filer will take us on a journey to the psychiatric wards he once worked on to challenge our preconceptions of schizophrenia. Mixing insight from mental health experts and personal stories from people who have lived with the diagnosis, he will dig beyond the myths and assumptions to offer a human perspective on this often misunderstood condition.

The event will be followed by a Q&A and book signing.

Tickets: £18 including a copy of The Heartland (RRP £14.99) / £8 standard / £5 Student or Foyalty member*. When purchasing a Student or Foyalty ticket, you'll need to bring a valid in-date Student card or Foyalty card with you.
