An evening with…Clare Mackintosh

March 7 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

£10.00 – £20.00

The date for the event has been changed from March 5th to March 7th.


‘I have always written about grief through the filter of fiction, with a layer of protection between my own experiences and the reader. It has been challenging, and at times uncomfortable, to explore my personal journey through grief, but I feel strongly that recovery begins with a conversation. The collective outpouring of grief caused by the pandemic, and by current global events, will endure for generations – we have never needed to talk about loss more than we do now.’

 -Clare Mackintosh

Grief is universal, but it’s also as unique to each of us as the person we’ve lost. It can be overwhelming, exhausting, lonely, unreasonable, there when we least expect it and seemingly never-ending. Wherever you are with your grief and whoever you’re grieving for, I Promise It Won’t Always Hurt Like This is here to support you.

To tell you, until you believe it, that things will get easier. When bestselling writer Clare Mackintosh lost her five-week-old son, she searched for help in books. All of them wanted to tell her what she should be feeling and when she should be feeling it, but the truth – as she soon found out – is that there are no neat, labelled stages for grief, or crash grief-diets to relieve us of our pain.

What we need when we’re grieving is time and understanding. With 18 short assurances that are full of compassion – drawn from Clare’s experiences of losing her son and her father – I Promise it Won’t Always Hurt Like This is the book she needed then.
