11 – 11.45 - Topic: Literature / Philosophy - Lucy Goodchild –
Moving to a new place can be exciting – you’re on an adventure, you’re discovering new things and meeting new people. But it can also be lonely; you might have pangs of homesickness and feel out of place. And don’t even get me started on the language!
You just want to relax, feel comfortable and escape from your worries. What you need is a prescription… of books. You can go on an adventure with the protagonist, empathise with their pain or learn from their mistakes. You can be a voyeur or go along for the ride.
Book lover Lucy Goodchild will talk about bibliotherapy – healing through books – and introduce her prescription for expats in Amsterdam.
All of her books are written by the Bucket List – the top 100 authors of all time – and she’ll be bringing a selection of fabulous reading experiences from Bucket List Bookshop for you to explore.
