Come and celebrate the launch of Disturbing the Body with us!
We’ve joined forces with feminist bookshops to celebrate Disturbing The Body, a subversive collection of speculative memoir about misbehaving bodies. We’ve got an exciting three-night extravaganza planned for you!
From illness to major medical operations, child-bearing to pain and chronic illness to disability, Disturbing the Body sets out to explore the many ways women feel powerless and at odds with their own bodies. In a dozen stories reflecting memoir, experience and body horror, this is an anthology full of heart that is not for the faint-hearted.
The three-part launch picks out common threads from the book to give you the following:
24th with Five Leaves: Louise Kenward & Laura Elliott, on storytelling that explores health, medicine and disability. Tickets available here.
This ambitious three-part launch reflects the creativity and character of radical bookshops and the scope of this anthology. See you there?
