Shell Shocked Britain: The First World War’s Legacy for Britain’s Mental Health with Suzie Grogan. Event

There’s a lot going on in Leeds in the next few weeks regarding mental health issues. The Love Arts Festival launches on Wednesday with a packed programme of events which the festival team hope will help you to think about mental health issues in a new and different way. The Big Bookend is contributing to the conversation too with a free event on Wednesday 29th October, 7pm,  at Waterstones, Leeds with Shell Shocked Britain author, Suzie Grogan. Suzie looks at the true extent of the trauma experienced by the survivors of WW1 and why the conflict still resonates into the 21st century. Full details of the event are here

We are delighted to announce that Suzie will be our guest blogger this Wednesday so look out for her post.
