Attend in person
Three writers discuss their books in which women encounter death and re-evaluate the bodies in which they live. Mortimer’s semi-autobiographical tour de force Maps of Our Spectacular Bodies charts a daughter’s relationship with her dying mother. In The Cure for Sleep Shadrick swears to begin living life to the full after narrowly escaping death following childbirth and in One Body, Simpson luminously embraces body positivity after cancer. Their conversation is chaired by author Helen McClory.
