Natasha Sholl’s recently published memoir Found, Wanting, tells the story of Natasha’s attempt to rebuild her life in the wake of her partner’s sudden death, stumbling through the grief landscape and colliding with the cultural assumptions about the ‘right way’ to grieve. Natasha will be in conversation with Dalit Kaplan, who has had a few essays published in which she reflects on loss, trauma, the Holocaust, and other sunny topics. Together they discuss grief, shame, the body, living in contradictory spaces and why writing trauma needs to come from scars, not wounds. They talk about why stories matter (or do they?) and why we shy away from uncomfortable conversations (until now!).
