Words in Pain

  • Talks
  • Monday 13 May, 7:30pm
  • £6 to £8

Join a discussion with the editors of Words in Pain, Jocelyn Catty and Trevor Moore, with readings from their embellished centenary edition of the collected letters of Olga Jacoby, a writer, thinker and rationalist who wrote them ‘under the sentence of death’ due to a terminal heart condition. She died leaving four young adopted children. The 1919 edition bore no author’s name because of the wish for family privacy. Detective work led to the discovery of Olga’s identity. The engaging letters brim with Olga’s clear-headed musings on the nature of illness, loss and death, yet remain full of hope.
