Book Group with the author, "Breaking Their Will" by Janet Heimlich

Hi Everyone

This month the book is "Breaking Their Will, Shedding Light on Religious Maltreatment" by Janet Heimlich

Janet will be present and the format will be similar to the one we had with Alom Shaha. Short introduction to the group and informal discussion in smaller groups.

Just like the previous meetings we will meet at 19h.

We will meet next to door A on level 3. This is one of the doors to access the auditorium. Once inside the Royal Festival Hall follow the signs to door A or ask any member of staff. Here is a map of the RFH. Look at level 3!

While in the UK, Janet will be talking to various groups. She has a presentation at Conway Hall on Thursday the 7th of March at 19h30. Quite a few of us will be going!

Her work won nine journalism awards, including the regional Katie, given by the Press Club of Dallas; the Houston Press Club’s Radio Journalist of the Year; and the Texas Bar Association’s Gavel Award. She also writes non-fiction articles for such publications as Texas Monthly, the Austin American-Statesman, and the Texas Observer.

    Hello! Can anyone give me some help with directions from the tube? I assume I get off at Waterloo station(?) After that, what is the best way to walk to the Southbank Centre? Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you!

      That is just the word! It was great to have an informal forum for sharing ideas. I really enjoyed it.

    I'm here in the pit opposite the bar with 3 tables and 8 chairs. Will collect more as people vacate. Janet, the picture here is a pretty good likeness of my ugly mug. Baps are you here yet?

    Janet, if it's a nice day and you have a little extra time, get off the tube at Embankment and walk across the river and you'll find the RFH facing you at the end of the bridge. Wonderful views past Waterloo Bridge to the City!

    Sorry, I've put this comment in the wrong place. I'm talking, of course, about Janet's talk this week at Conway Hall originally on Thurs 7th.

    March 5, 2013

  • Fiona W.

    I do hope those who've said they they're going have noted the change of date to Sunday 10 March (see Conway Hall website).

    I won't be able to attend book groups until my course ends at the end of April, because I have too much to read already. Trying to finish The Satanic Verses while getting through Aristotle, Leibnitz and so on was always going to be a doomed undertaking. Having said that, I'm glad I began reading it and I'm also glad I've already got this one (the one about religious education) on Kindle.
