In conversation with author Kit de Waal, Cariad will talk about why grief needs a new set of rules, share insights learned from her many incredible guests and how to maintain a sense of humour when dealing with the tragedy of life. An event for anybody who has felt lost in grief, who wants to help someone struggling, or perhaps just wants to understand this life a little better.
