Author talk: Childless: A Story of Freedom and Longing - Sian Prior in conversation with Claire Halliday (ZOOM)

Writing groups and literature Like many women, Sian Prior arrived at the point where she was ready to start having babies—and found they were not hers to have. Three miscarriages with a supportive partner; a new partner who already had all the children he wanted; step-children; step-grandchildren; the decision to parent solo, followed by many rounds of fertility treatments. After all this Sian found herself, at fifty, childless and coming to terms. Weighing up the freedoms against the losses. Dealing with the unacknowledged legacy of her own lost father. Observing parenthood itself—how we succeed at it and how we fail—from a perspective outside the trenches. A Zoom invite will be emailed to registered participants at least one hour prior to event.
