Sophie Hannah

Thursday, 4 April 2019

1 hour

Bodleian: Divinity School

£7 - £12.50

Crime fiction writer Sophie Hannah takes a humorous look at holding grudges and argues that holding them in an enlightened way can actually make us more forgiving.

Hannah looks at her own grudges and seeks expert help from psychotherapists for a comprehensive look at the holding of grudges. She argues that denying negative emotions can only lead to more stress and pain. Hannah looks at when we should let a grudge go and how to honour a grudge but take lessons from it that will make us into better and happier people.

Hannah is a bestselling writer of crime fiction. Her books include Hercule Poirot mysteries and the Simon and Charlie novels. They have been translated into 49 languages and adapted for television. Her poetry has also been shortlisted for the TS Eliot Award.
