Ella Berthoud: THE NOVEL CURE
Ella Berthoud’s ‘The Novel Cure’ is a medical handbook, with a difference. Whether you have stubbed your toe or have a severe case of the blues, within its pages you’ll find a cure in the form of a novel to ease your pain. You’ll also find advice on how to tackle common reading ailments-such as what to do when you feel overwhelmed by the number of books in the world, or you have a tendency to give up half way through. When read at the right moment in your life, a novel can-quite literally- change it. This is also a fresh approach to finding new books to read, and an enchanting way to revisit the books on your shelves.
During this event Ella can provide personalised book recommendations should you be willing to discuss your own ailments with her. She will also talk about her new book ‘The Story Cure’ which looks at children’s books in a similar way. Find all your medical and literary needs here!
