Food for Thought with Somebody I Used To Know

“I have some food in my bag for you
Not that edible food, the food you eat
No, I have some food for thought.
– Erykah Badu

Food For Thought is our take on afternoon tea, an opportunity to feed our bellies and minds every Thursday here at Impact Hub Birmingham.


Join us as we gather around the workbench and discuss key themes and ideas each week, hosted by the community over tea and cake!

This week Impact Hub Birmingham team member Nikki Bi will bringing her role as Birmingham Literature Festival’s Reader in Residence a bit closer to home and she will be hosting a special Food for Thought with Immy Kaur on Wendy Mitchell’s book Somebody I Used To Know.

What do you lose when you lose your memories? What do you value when this loss reframes how you’ve lived, and how you will live in the future? How do you conceive of love when you can no longer recognise those who are supposed to mean the most to you?

Join the Impact Hub Birmingham community for a special Food for Thought, where we explore  the themes of Wendy Mitchell’s book as written by Anna Wharton. Somebody I Used To Know is a ground breaking book, the first memoir ever written by someone living with Dementia. Immy Kaur will also be sharing her experience of living with her granddad who lived with dementia for many years.

If you can’t make it to this Food for Thought, do book tickets to hear from Wendy Mitchell and Anna Wharton on Sunday 7th October at Birmingham Literature Festival.




Food for Thought is free for Impact Hub Birmingham members to attend and £5 for non members.
If you’re not a member, you can book your ticket via Eventbrite here.

If you are interested in hosting a conversation or activity of your own at a future Food For Thought, please do get in touch.
