Wintering with Katherine May
Friday 30 September, 7pm - 8pm
“Wintering brings about some of the most profound and insightful moments of our human experience, and wisdom resides in those who have wintered.”
― Katherine May, Wintering: The power of rest and retreat in difficult times
A conversation centred in Katherine May’s wonderful meditation Wintering, a Reader bookshelf book for 2022, considering the question of how humans get through harder times.
Professor Philip Davis introduces the New York Times bestselling author and one of her biggest fans, Melissa Chapple, a post-graduate researcher into autism, reading and empathy at University of Liverpool. The conversation will include discussion of Katherine’s memoir The Electricity of Every Living Thing, her account of learning she was autistic as an adult.
If you have enjoyed Katherine’s work, or like the sound of it, or are part of the autistic community, you’ll find this a deeply engaging event. Katherine May will join via Zoom, Melissa and Philip will be live on stage.
