Join us for an evening of far-ranging discussion on addiction and chronic illness with Lucia Osborne-Crowley, Matt Rowland-Hill and Oliver Mol.

Lucia Osborne-Crowley's books I CHOOSE ELENA and MY BODY KEEPS YOUR SECRETS make the case for a new understanding of abuse, trauma and shame by way of her own story of surviving sexual assault.


Oliver Mol's TRAIN LORD recounts how he lived through the hell of a ten-month migraine, finding a path towards healing when, with no other options, he took a job as a train guard.

Matt Rowland Hill's ORIGINAL SINS tells how he traded a fundamentalist Christian upbringing for a decade of heroin and crack addiction before a kind of salvation arrived in the most unexpected of forms.

Join Lucia, Oliver and Matt for an intimate discussion about memoir, addiction, chronic illness, recovery, laughter, hope and healing – and about the question of how far redemption is possible, in life and art.
