The Last Act of Love with Cathy Rentzenbrink
time:16:00
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

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

Cathy Rentzenbrink is the author of the raw and brutally honest book, The Last Act of Love: The Story of My Brother and His Sister. In 1990, Cathy’s brother Matty was knocked down by a car and suffered serious head injuries which left him in a permanent vegetative state. The family looked after, fed and loved Matty for years, but the realisation dawned that it might be kinder to let him go.

During this conversation with Dr Lesel Dawson, University of Bristol, Cathy will read and discuss excerpts from her book. She’ll explore how grief affected her, and how writing about it has aided the process.

Ultimately, this is a story of unconditional love that will resonate with anyone who has lost a loved one, or who is wondering if extending someone’s life might be more painful than letting go. Cathy will be available for book signings directly afterwards.

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