Information:

This event is part of Good Grief Bristol, A Festival of Love and Loss. 11-17 May 2020 (https://goodgriefbristol.com/).

As a psychiatrist, Dr Tanya Atapattu understands the importance of story. She says, “We often tell ourselves the stories of our grief as we work through experiences of loss, of love and of heartbreak.” 

In this session, she discusses the heartache and heartbreak that led to writing her debut novel, Things My Mother Told Me, and how refiguring the profound loss of a long-term relationship allowed her to recover from the grief.

Tanya Atapattu is a warm, funny, talented writer. This session will make you think about how you talk about your losses and how your stories can help you heal.

“Funny, big-hearted and poignant” - Julie Cohen

“Heartwarming, witty…honest and poignant” - Sadie Pearse

Concessions are available for OAPs, students, under 18s, the unwaged, and people with disabilities.
