How do we make sense of great tragedy? Three acclaimed writers – Richard Beard (The Day That Went Missing), Max Porter (Grief is the Thing with Feathers) and Cathy Rentzenbrink (The Last Act of Love) – come together for an honest yet uplifting discussion of family, loss, and strength, which addresses the healing power of words, and whether reading can prepare us for living with heartache.

This event is part of our City of Literature Weekend, 26 - 28 May
