Family Narratives

Saturday 20th October 2018

Pip Desmond and Emma Gilkison explore how love compelled them to write about the intimate details of their family lives, revealing stories of universal interest.

Pip Desmond ('Song for Rosaleen') has written honestly about caring for her mother, who had dementia. In 'The Heart of Jesus Valentino', Emma Gilkison recounts the toughest decision of her life.

Kerry Sunderland joins them to explore how memoir captures moments that swing from joy to sadness, and back again.
