BLF Monthly Online Event: Kate Mosse

Bestselling author Kate Mosse discusses her memoir An Extra Pair of Hands, on caring, ageing and love.

Chaired by Alison Jean Lester

As our population ages, more and more of us find ourselves caring for parents and loved ones, an invisible army of carers holding families together.

Join us on Thursday 22nd July at 7pm for our virtual event with international bestselling novelist Kate Mosse, as she tells her own personal story of finding herself a carer in middle age.

Her latest book An Extra Pair of Hands, tells the story about the gentle heroism of carers, celebrating older people and thinking differently about ageing. But most of all, it’s a story about love.

Kate will be in conversation with writer Alison Jean Lester, whose latest work Absolutely Delicious: A Chronicle of Extraordinary Dying describes the months she spent with her mother as she faced the fact that her cancer was terminal, and chose to approach the end of her life with the same positive energy with which she had lived.

All proceeds from this event will be donated to Forward Carers, who work to support carers across Birmingham.
