A reading and short play, followed by debate about the NHS, led by the authors will take place in the main Library on Saturday, the 8th March from 2:30pm-4pm. From the book review here:
"Born in the NHS is one of those books that’s hard to categorise. It offers a fascinating slice of social history – families in sickness and health, the changing roles of health professionals – over the last seventy years, but it’s no dry academic study. The book – a collaboration between two poets, Wendy French and Jane Kirwan – is brimming with life, real people and their dramas. It is also thoughtful, reflective and packed with things you didn’t know but might now be glad you’ve found out." Read more or borrow the book.
