Let’s Talk About… Blindness: Reading Room discussion

Drop In discussion


Days before the birth of his first son, writer and academic John M Hull started to go blind. In Notes on Blindness, John reveals his profound sense of loss and his altered perceptions of time and space, of waking and sleeping, of love and companionship.

Come and listen to readings from John’s book, followed by small group discussions on some of its key themes.

Notes on Blindness is published by Wellcome Collection and Profile Books.
