After the success of Feminists Don’t Wear Pink (and other lies), Style columnist and Pink Protest founder Scarlett Curtis returns with another insightful anthology, this time examining mental health. 

It’s Not OK to Feel Blue (and other lies) is a collection of essays, stories and poems from over 70 inspirational people. It is a call to arms to tackle the mental illness epidemic, and a reassuring voice that tells readers they are not alone.

Join Scarlett Curtis, Jack Rooke, Jordan Stephens, KUCHENGA, Robert Kazandjian and Michelle Elman as they discuss their individual pieces in the collection and consider what their mental health means to them. This is an exclusive London event celebrating on World Mental Health Day the publication of It’s Not OK to Feel Blue (and other lies). 

‘This is the book I needed when I was younger. May this be a leap forward in the much-needed conversation around mental health.’ Jameela Jamil

‘Reading this book made me feel more normal about the things I feel sometimes, whether it’s for a reason or just because that’s how I woke up that day. It’s a great book; however you’re feeling, it’ll help.’ Ed Sheeran

Doors: 6:45pm

Event starts: 7:30pm
