The Far Side Festival, 3 pm, Saturday 19th September 2015, Sheraton Hotel, Gleeson Street, Athlone, Westmeath.
On the opening day of the Athlone Far Side Festival, Terry Lynch will speak with Dara White (of Renew Ireland) about emotional and mental health and his new book, “Depression Delusion Volume One: The Myth of the Brain Chemical Imbalance”.
Terry’s style is open and engaging. Terry’s talk will be followed by some Spanish guitar music and a poetry reading and discussion with well-known poet Iggy McGovern.
I expect that, like the 2013 Athlone Literary Festival talk/conversation which was also with Dara White, this conversation about mental health will be wide-ranging, spontaneous and informative, with plenty of time for audience participation. I anticipate that, like the 2013 Athlone talk, this one will likely last about an hour or so, with ample time for discussion.
I understand that a fee of 10 Euro applies. As room capacity was exceeded for the 2013 talk in Athlone, booking early might be advisable. Places can be booked by emailing the festival at firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you there!
