Erin Donohue - When Everything Is Wrong

Saturday 21st October 2017

Novelist and anorexia survivor Erin Donohue has lived a lifetime in her 22 years.

The former ballet dancer’s first book Because Everything Is Right but Everything Is Wrong has just been released, shedding light on the intricacies of friendship, mental health and masculinity in the ordinary lives of New Zealand teens.

She’ll be talking to Jessie Bray Sharpin about writing, mental health, and how her teenage experiences with illness shaped her novel.
