About the event

In this session, I will speak to Katherine about her new release Body Friend, her writing practice, and a little about history (of course, I can't resist!) I came across Brabon's wonderful novels through social media, and decided that I had just to have a chat with her! Thankfully, she agreed! If you haven't heard of Katherine Brabon before, she is also the author of two other novels: The Memory Artist and The Shut Ins.
