Non-Bullshit Innovation: Radical Ideas from the World’s Smartest Minds

Hay Festival 2019, 

The founding Editor-in-chief of WIRED’s UK edition travels the globe in search of the most exciting and pioneering start-ups building the future, meeting ambitious entrepreneurs disrupting businesses in almost every sector. And yet too often the companies think they can innovate through jargon; with talk of change agents and co-creation gurus, ideas portals and webinars, paradigm shifts and pilgrimages to Silicon Valley. It’s mostly pointless innovation theatre – corporate nonsense that has little to do with delivering real change. But during this quest he’s also discovered some genuinely exciting and transformative approaches to innovation, often in places you might least expect…

Katherine McMahon, Maureen Waller

1700 and All That

Hay Festival 2000, 
McMahon's After Mary is a historical novel about the great seventeenth century Catholic educationist Mary Ward, who fought a series of Popes to set up a female Jesuit Order, and who was eventually imprisioned by the Inquisition on suspicion of heresy. Waller's 1700: Scenes from London Life is a non-fiction account of the same period. A booming London appears modern in its overt materialism. It was the most magnificent city in Europe yet the streets were open sewers and life there was so precarious that it might be described as 'a mere prelude to death'

The inaugural RLF Lecture at Hay is given by the pre-eminent biographer of Shelley and Coleridge, author of The Age of Wonder, Footsteps: Adventures of a Romantic Biographer and Sidetracks: Explorations of a Romantic Biographer.

Wainewright the Poisoner

Hay Festival 2000, 
The Poet Laureate has won acclaim for his excellent biographies of Keats and Larkin. This time though, 'the overlay of legends' associated with Wainewright and the fact that he 'falls out of the historical record so often and for so long' made a traditional biography impossible. So instead he has turned Wainewright's remarkable life into a hybrid biography-cum-novel. Motion discusses his contrversial and highly entertaining life of the dandified friend of Blake, Charles Lamb, de Quincey and Keats.
