Tidelines Book Festival – Catherine Simpson

24 September @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Body Matters

By the time she reached her fifties, Catherine Simpson had experienced half a lifetime of relentless harassment, misogyny and body-shaming, alongside her career and family life. She’d dieted, jogged, tanned and plucked, attempting to conform to prevailing standards of “acceptable womanhood.” But when a medical crisis came along, she could no longer pummel her body into submission and was forced to take stock. Demystifying, relatable, often hilarious, this is the story of how Catherine came to appreciate the skin she is in.

Tickets for this event are £6, £8 or £10 and you are welcome to pay whichever you can afford.
