Norfolk residents Julian of Norwich and Margery Kempe each proclaimed to have heard the voice of God. In recording their experiences they became two of the most important writers in the English language. How have we come to see voices in our heads as a sign of madness? Acclaimed writer and psychologist Charles Fernyhough will draw upon research for his book The Voices Within to lead a discussion on how words weave together in our consciousness.
The Voices Within was hand-picked by The Guardian as one of 'The best non-fiction for 2016'
Julian of Norwich and the Voices in Our Heads is part of our City of Literature Weekend
