This event took place on Monday 6th December 2021 (18:00 - 19:00)

Vital Discussions On Demand is a series of conversations created by the Royal Society for Literature.

Forensic psychotherapist Gwen Adshead and ‘the Queen of Crime’ Val McDermid have spent their careers exploring our interior worlds and the edges of society. Their conversation will span human cruelty, compassion, change and recovery, and how we find the words to describe the unspeakable parts of existence.
