Friday, 6 November 2020 - 12:30pm to 1:30pm

Hear from writer Kylie Maslen when she joins us to talk about her book 'Show Me Where it Hurts: Living with Invisible Illness'.

Kylie Maslen has been living with invisible illness for twenty years - more than half her life. Its impact is felt in every aspect of her day-to-day existence: from work to dating; from her fears for what the future holds to her difficulty getting out of bed some mornings.

Through pop music, art, literature, TV, film and online culture, Maslen explores the lived experience of invisible illness with sensitivity and wit, drawing back the veil on a reality many struggle - or refuse - to recognise.

'Show Me Where it Hurts' is a powerful collection of essays that speak to those who have encountered the brush-off from doctors, faced endless tests and treatments, and endured chronic pain and suffering. But it is also a bridge reaching out to partners, families, friends, colleagues, doctors: all those who want to better understand what life looks like when you cannot simply show others where it hurts.
