FACE IT: Facial Disfigurement and My Fight for Face Equality

James Partridge

Date and time

Venue
Guille-Allès Library

Price
FREE*

Shelaine Green will be talking to James Partridge who was eighteen when he was severely facially burned. FACE IT tells how he found a way to live happily with his distinctive face in our face-perfect society, turned the lessons he’d learned into practical empowerment for others with facial disfigurements, and launched the global campaign for ‘face equality’ for everyone, whatever their face looks like. FACE IT looks prejudice in the eye and refuses to blink.

FACE IT will be available to purchase at the event for £20 and James will also be doing a book signing after his talk.
