Wednesday 11th September 6:00pm
Come and help us celebrate the publication of Joe Hammond’s highly anticipated memoir, A Short History of Falling. Searingly beautiful, profound and unforgettable, A Short History of Falling is a story of love and fatherhood that finds light and even humour in the darkest of places. It is the story of what it means to lose your body and your connections to the world one by one; of the experience of living with – and dying of – motor neurone disease (ALS).
Hailed by Christie Watson (author of The Language of Kindness) as ‘a beautifully written reminder that life can be tragic as well as full of joy’ and by Kathryn Mannix (author of With the End in Mind) as a book that ‘will inspire you even as it breaks your heart’, this astonishing book will truly change the way you see the world.
Join us for an evening of drinks and a few words from those closest to Joe to mark this very special book. There will also be an opportunity to raise money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association on the evening.
