The Testaments out now


Joanna Cannon at The Yeovil Literary Festival

Sunday 3rd November 14:00 at The Swan Theatre, Park Street, Yeovil, BA20 1QT

In this powerful memoir, the best-selling author of The Trouble with Goats and Sheep and Three Things About Elsie, tells her story as a junior doctor in visceral, heart-rending snapshots. We walk with her through the wards, facing extraordinary and daunting moments daily: from attending your first post-mortem to telling a patient you’re sorry.

These moments teach her that emotional care and understanding mental health can be as critical as restoring a heartbeat. In a profession where weakness remains a taboo, this moving, beautifully written and candid book brings to life the vivid, human stories of doctors, patients and the hospital, and shows us why we need to take better care of those who care for us.

Yeovil Literary Festival Events last approximatley 45 - 60 mins.
