Gower St Indie Spotlight: Lucia Osborne-Crowley on My Body Keeps Your Secrets
Thursday 7th October 2021
18:30 at Waterstones, London - Gower Street
Join us for an evening with Lucia Osborne-Crowley (I Chose Elena) who will be discussing her latest book My Body Keeps Your Secrets; an immersive, polyphonic memoir exploring the intricacies of abuse, trauma and shame. Lucia will be in conversation with Alya Mooro, author of The Greater Freedom and host of #TalkofShame podcast.
Through the voices of women, trans and non-binary people around
the world and her own deeply moving testimony, Lucia speaks of
vulnerability and acceptance, and the reclaiming of ourselves in a
world that repeatedly asks us to carry the weight of the shame of the
atrocities committed against us.
Widely researched and boldly argued, My Body Keeps Your Secrets (The Indigo Press)
reveals the secrets a body keeps — the trauma that can rewrite our
biology, our relationship with sex, and how we connect with others,
establishing Lucia’s credentials as a key intersectional feminist thinker
of a new generation.
Lucia Osborne-Crowley is a writer and journalist. Her news reporting
and literary work has appeared in Granta, The Sunday Times, HuffPost
UK, the Guardian, ABC News, Meanjin, The Lifted Brow and others.
Lucia works as a staff reporter for Law360.
