The author, retired vet, ex-racing cylist and head injury victim talks about his life.

Julian Earl

Julian Earl
Cows in Trees

When a fall from a bike left Julian Earl with a traumatic brain injury, he never anticipated how drastically his life—and his hobbies—would change as a result.

In August 2012, avid cyclist and former veterinary surgeon Julian was taking part in a local cycle race when he crashed. Julian is unable to remember the details of what happened, but suspects that he fell off his bike while travelling at 30 mph and his head hit the kerbstone.

Headway East London is a local charity supporting people affected by brain injury. They offer specialist support and services to survivors and their family, whilst also campaigning for greater public awareness. Their vision is to build a community where people with brain injury are valued, respected and able to fulfil their potential.

This event is supported by Newham Bookshop, Headway East London and Hammond House Publishing. All proceeds are in aid of Headway East London.
