Three things about ageing: Empathy, literature and dementia

22 May 2019 18:00 - 20:00

Museum of Liverpool, Pier Head, Liverpool , L3 1DG

Join Joanna and Molly in conversation about literature, empathy and depictions of ageing and care in fiction.


Joanna Cannon’s novel Three Things About Elsie was longlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction and is a Richard & Judy Book Club choice. Joanna draws inspiration for her writing from her work as a psychiatrist and her interest in people on the fringes of society.
Molly Case, spoken word artist, writer and nurse, works at St George's Hospital, London. Currently a cardiac nurse specialist, Molly spent two years as a care worker looking after people with dementia. Her debut collection of poetry, Underneath the Roses Where I Remembered Everything was published in 2015.
