BBC Radio Four’s ‘Bookclub’ programme is looking for people to take part in a radio discussion about the book ‘The Music Room’ by William Fiennes.
The book is about William's childhood, which was dominated by his brother Richard. Richard was known for his towering presence, his inventiveness, his great passion for Leeds United, and the issues he faced due to his severe epilepsy.
In the book, William also explores the history of treatments and diagnosis of epilepsy. He starts with the ancient Greeks naming it The Sacred Disease and goes through to case studies of children in the 1950s.
Do you have epilepsy, or have a friend or family member with epilepsy, or work with someone with epilepsy? The production team are looking for readers with personal experiences of epilepsy to read the book and join in the discussion.
The programme will be recorded on Monday 9 May 2011 at 5.30pm, at BBC Bush House in central London. Tickets are free and available from the Bookclub webpage.
