17th May 2020 | Live Stream

Book Club LIVE is Salon Lockdown's venture to invite us all to a Book Club with the author. So please join us on 17th May for a Book Club LIVEstream with Jackie Kay, the award-winning poet and national poet laureate of Scotland, and Janie Brown, author, counselor and nurse of thirty years. Together they’ll be discussing a new way of approaching how to live by considering the end of our lives through Janie's brilliant new book, Radical Acts of Love. How We Find Hope at the End of Life.

In this profound and moving digital Salon, Janie will discuss with Jackie Kay twenty conversations that have reoccurred during her career as a nurse, each one offering insight into one of the most important but least-discussed experiences of our lives. 

This Salon will be “hugely life-affirming” says Jackie Kay, “it will make you think not just of how you might want to approach death, but of how you might want to live. These conversations from the heart of dying are bold, gracious, often witty and full of love. They accompany you in the dark. Then they let the light in.”

Janie and Jackie will be in-conversation with Salon London’s Helen Bagnall before we put your questions to them - LIVE.

Numbers will be limited. Access is £7 or free if you buy the book Radical Acts of Love. How We Find Hope at the End of Life below. Alternatively, become a member and get unlimited access to all Salon events, live and on-line, across the year.

The book is on sale until 8th May, so we can send them out and give everyone plenty of time to read it.

A link to the live stream will be e-mailed out to guests 48 hours before the event.
