How lucky am I to have had a whole new world open up before me? The ‘Book world’ had never entered my life pre-dementia, just like so many other worlds……but it appears that the Autumn Book Festival season is upon us and I’ve been so lucky to have been invited to a few…..
The first one is at Appledore in Devon in September. By pure coincidence I’d been invited to speak at a Care Homes Annual Conference in Barnstaple a couple of days before so they both tied in nicely as it’s a mammoth journey………Details below of Appledore…I’m there on Saturday 22nd September…..
Then one of the first to be announced in October is the The Times and Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival. I’m speaking there with Neurologist Jules Montague – “Do Memories make us who we are”. More details of that one below
It would be wonderful if I actually had a chance to meet any of my blog or Twitter followers from those part of the country. It’s always so nice to meet people face to face.
I’ve met so many wonderful people who I would never have met if dementia hadn’t entered my life, so for that I have to be grateful…..
