Mr Filer’s best-selling novel The Shock of the Fall won the 2013 Costa Book of the Year and the 2014 Betty Trask Prize and has been lauded as one of the most important literary examinations of mental health in the 21st century. It describes the life of a boy from Bristol dealing with his grief at the death of his brother and his experience of mental health care services for schizophrenia.
The guest lecture, which is also free to attend for the general public, starts at 6pm and follows the University’s first ever Sixth-From Festival of Writing with nearly 300 pupils from schools across the Humber region.
