Imagine endangering others in a storm tossed boat off Mull because you can’t hear the commands; imagine what it is like to spend 28 years of your life hearing and then 12 years deaf. In conversation with the broadcaster Sheena McDonald, Bella Bathurst will talk about her brilliant new book Sound and the moving personal journey behind it.
Prize winning author of The Lighthouse Stevensons, Bella Bathurst went deaf in 1997 until, 12 years later, she discovered her condition was operable and her hearing was recovered. Bella reveals what that teaches you about listening and silence, music and noise and how much she began to hear with her eyes. She investigates the science behind deafness, the hearing loss among musicians, soldiers and factory workers, and the use of sign language as well as what the deaf know about these subjects that hearers don’t.
Concessions are available to students, registered disabled (plus one carer), registered unemployed, under 16s and Young Scot card holders. Proof of entitlement will be required at the door for all events. Thank you.
