Elizabeth Reeder on Skating to Antarctica
Thu 24 Aug 11:00am - 12:30pm
Glasgow University English Lecturer Elizabeth Reeder explores Jenny Diski's Skating to Antarctica. Part memoir, part study of depression and travelogue, the writing reveals a desperate need for the oblivion of singing silence and a place free of pain. Expect an open discussion from the start: you can either read the book ahead of the event or be inspired to pick it up afterwards.
