'Hugely warm, wise, hopeful and encouraging' - Alain de Botton.
Absorbing, clever and funny, instead of mapping out the perfect plan, Perry offers a big-picture look at the elements that lead to good parent-child relationships. Refreshing and judgement-free, The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read is full of sage and sane advice, as well as being a beautifully comprehensive look at what it might mean to be a sane and emotionally intelligent parent.
After volunteering with the Samaritans, Philippa Perry trained as a psychotherapist. She has since worked in the mental health field for several years, and continues to work with an organisation called Talk for Health, as well as presenting numerous documentaries in this field with the BBC, Channel 4 and more. She is the author of the graphic novel, Couch Fiction, as well as How To Stay Sane, published by the School of Life and Pan Macmillan.
Please join us for what promises to be a lively, entertaining evening of discussion.
