Arvon at Home: Live Guest Reading

Reading and Q&A from Rachel Clarke via Zoom

Wednesday November 18th 2020, 7:15pm GMT

Online

Now more than ever we need stories – to engage, to distract, to entertain, to nourish, and to help us make sense of what we’re living through. And so while you can’t come to us, instead we will come to you, bringing a taste of Arvon into your home one night a week. Every week an Arvon tutor will join us as a guest, to read from their own work and answer your questions live and in person online.

This live guest reading is with Rachel Clarke on Wednesday, 18 November at 7:15 pm BST. Rachel Clarke’s two books to date – Your Life in My Hands and Dear Life, both of them Sunday Times bestsellers – have been celebrated for their ‘tender, lyrical beauty’ (The Sunday Times) and for being ‘brimful of love, grace and kindness’ (Guardian). Rachel is a current NHS doctor and former television journalist. In her 20’s, she made documentaries, on subjects as diverse as the Monica Lewinsky scandal, Al Qaeda and the civil war in the Democratic Republic of Congo. She then retrained as a doctor and now works in palliative medicine, believing that helping patients at the end of life experience the best quality life possible is priceless.

The reading and interactive Q&A will be hosted on Zoom. This is a live event and will not be recorded.

We are more committed than ever to helping writers find inspiration, and to make space for their own creativity, no matter the setting. So join us from the comfort of your sofa and listen to writers share their work, the stories behind their work, and invaluable writing advice directly from their own desk (or maybe the kitchen table).

Cost: £5.00

Very lovely. It had an intimate feeling despite it being a Zoom event and all of us being in different places.
