Talk Wigtown Book Festival: Bella Bathurst - Sound

Wigtown Book Festival: Bella Bathurst - <i>Sound</i>

Key facts

Genre: Event with live subtitles


In 1997, Bella Bathurst began to lose her hearing, and for 12 years deafness shaped her life. Then, in 2009, everything changed again. She talks about her extraordinary experience and what it taught her about listening and silence, music and noise. Investigating the science of deafness, she argues that if sight gives us the world, hearing gives us each other – and our relationship with sound is far more complex than we might expect.

This event has live subtitles by Stagetext.

“A book to remind us to treasure the gift of sound,” The Times.

Tickets: £8.00.
