Birmingham Humanists meeting, 21 November: Ariane Sherine

You may be interested in the next meeting of Birmingham Humanists, at 7.30pm on Wednesday, 21 November. Ariane Sherine, the comedy writer and journalist who created the Atheist Bus Campaign, as well as the bestselling celebrity book The Atheist’s Guide to Christmas, will be giving a talk, based on her new book Talk yourself better.

The meeting will be held at Moseley Exchange, 149–153 Alcester Road, Moseley, Birmingham B13 8JP.

We’ve all watched films and telly programmes featuring therapists, such as The Sopranos – but what’s the best way to access therapy in real life if you’re not a mafia boss? What’s the difference between therapy and counselling, or CBT and psychoanalysis? And why pay a stranger to listen to you in the first place? Can’t a good friend provide a shoulder to cry on?

In her talk Ariane will answer all these questions and more, demystifying once and for all the secret world of therapy – with plenty of laughs along the way. She’ll also be signing copies of Talk yourself better after the talk.

Ariane has written for BBC1’s My Family, Channel 4’s Countdown and BBC2’s Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps, as well as for The Guardian, The Sunday Times, The Independent, The Observer, New Statesman and The Spectator.

Please note: this event is not organised by Shropshire Humanists.
