Christie Watson in Conversation with Elif Shafak

10 June 2021

To mark the paperback publication of The Courage To Care

Professor Christie Watson is an award winning writer, and was a registered nurse for over 20 years. A theatre adaptation of her work on nursing is about to go on UK tour. Her latest book, The Courage To Care: a vital and timely book about inspirational nurses, and the bravery of patients and families.

Nurses have never been more important. We benefit from their expertise in our hospitals and beyond: in our schools, on our streets, in prisons, hospices and care homes. When we feel most alone, nurses remind us that we are not alone at all.

Join the number 1 bestselling author of The Language of Kindness for this exclusive virtual event. In conversation with author and speaker Elif Shafak. Christie and Elif will explore the power of stories and consider how listening to each other can nurture democracy, empathy, and optimism about the future.

Don’t miss this wide-reaching and life-affirming conversation about compassion, strength and courage in the 21st century.

‘Now more than ever, nurses are on our minds and in our hearts. Christie writes with beauty and compassion about how they do their jobs. When I wasn't crying, I was marvelling.’ Tracy Chevalier

‘An inspiring book for our challenging times. It's never been more important to care for one another and the amazing Christie Watson shows us the way.’ Olivia Colman
