    More info: 
    First up, from January 2023, Morgan Quaintance will host three reading groups that will focus on ‘PsychoPolitics’ by Peter Sedgwick. As relevant today as it was when first published in 1982, the book changed the conversation on mental health and illness, demanding that we assess its relationship to the wider decay of social institutions. Morgan will explore one of the most significant and credible critiques of the anti-psychiatry movement through readings and discussion.
    * All events are free to attend but booking is advised and we ask that you can commit to all three groups to ensure continuity *
    The dates are...
    Reading group 1 - Thursday 19 January - 6.30pm - 8.30pm
    Reading group 2 - Thursday 23 February - 6.30pm - 8.30pm
    Reading group 3 - Thursday 30 March - 6.30pm - 8.30pm

    * EACH EVENT WILL BE BSL INTERPRETED *
    You will be sent readings in advance of each session once you have signed up. If you can’t make the event, please return your ticket as soon as you can so someone else can attend. Reading groups are not suitable for children under 16 years of age.
    The Reading Room is a new collaborative project where people can read, learn, listen, and share ideas. Through linking up with other spaces across the country, Pluto Press and the Left Book Club have created libraries stocked with thought provoking books, where reading groups and opportunities to meet authors are being established, providing resources and activities that hope to catalyse creativity, collaboration and conversation.
    All events will take place at: The Old Waterworks, North Road, Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex, SS0 7AB.
    Morgan Quaintance is a London-based artist and writer.
