Tuesday 25 March
The Dark Threads Partnership Event
Jean Davison will read from her memoir The Dark Threads and talk about her experiences as a patient at High Royds psychiatric hospital in the 1970s. Electric Shock Treatment and drugs reduced her to a zombie-like state for five years, before she managed to turn her life around. The talk will also include her experiences of writing the book and getting published. A question/discussion session will follow, and then the evening will be rounded off with tea/coffee and biscuits.
7.00pm Oxfam Bookshop, 13-15 Otley Road, Headingley, Leeds LS6 3AA (next to Skyrack pub)
