Fickling Lecture: Henry Marsh on ‘Brain Surgery and Other Stories’

Tuesday 30th April 5:30-6:45pm

The 2019 Fickling Lecture on Developments in Children’s Literature will be given by Henry Marsh, neurosurgeon and author, on ‘Brain Surgery and Other Stories’.

Doctors are both witnesses and participants in the stories of the lives  of their patients. In recent years there has been an explosion in books written by doctors for the general public, and it is all about story-telling. But what makes for a good medical story when it is addressed to younger readers?

Part of Newcastle University’s Insights public lecture series, this event is sponsored by David Fickling Books and is hosted by Newcastle University’s Children’s Literature Unit and Seven Stories.

Suitable for adults. Free event, no booking required. Seats are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please note this event is taking place at Curtis Auditorium, Herschel Building, Newcastle University.
