Sunday 6th October – 11am – Library Downstairs
This session gives an opportunity to hear authors Edward McLaughlin and Agnes Houston discuss their writing on dementia. Edward’s book Vivid Rebellion cuts through any assumptions that a diagnosis of the condition signals an automatic loss of personality and agency, while Agnes’s Talking Sense overturns the longstanding conventional wisdom that dementia is primarily about memory.
Chair: Christeen Winford
