Amy Bloom: Till Death Us Do Part

The last time American author Amy Bloom came to the Book Festival in 2014 to talk about Lucky Us, she travelled with her husband Brian. In 2020 they made a very different kind of journey together – to Switzerland where Brian was helped by Dignitas to end his life. In Love is Bloom’s lyrical, intimate and authentic account of a life and death together. Join her today for some searingly honest insights, chaired by Lee Randall.

Amy Bloom is appearing remotely.
