A Puff of Smoke (published by Jonathan Cape 7th November) is a graphic memoir about what it is like to grow up with an illness that no one can diagnose. Sarah Lippett spent eleven years suffering with symptoms from an unknown condition, until she was diagnosed with the rare disease Moyamoya at the age of 17 (a rare neurological disease that currently affects 1 in 1 million in the UK).

For the month of November (1st - 29th November) an exhibition will be held at The Centre For Better Health (1A Darnley Road, E9 6QH) that will explore the wider themes of the memoir. Open weekdays 12:00 - 17:00pm.

Join Sarah to celebrate the launch of the A Puff of Smoke on the 1st of November 6-9pm at The Centre for Better Health in London. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.

This exhibition is curated by Samantha Lippett, who was born within weeks of when it all started.

Drinks available and open to all!
