CHHS reading group: Dr Mimi Thebo

Dr Mimi Thebo joined us at our Centre for Health, Humanities and Science event on 18/04/2018 in room G.16 of Cotham House.

Mimi is Reader in Creative Writing at the University of Bristol and a Carnegie-longlisted author for children and teens. Her work has been translated into twelve languages, adapted for a BAFTA-winning BBC film, illustrated in light and signed for deaf children by ITV. Trauma is one of her main narrative interests: Hospital High, in particular, is based on her own experience of a severe car accident. It was of special interest to those of us working on illness narratives, on hospitals, and on respiratory conditions.

This event took the form of a ‘reading group’ style meeting. Those who attended were encouraged to read Hospital High in advance of the meeting; copies were available to borrow from the Arts and Social Sciences Library, or could be purchased online following this link.
