Judith Thurman

Secrets of the Flesh

Hay Festival 2000, 
Heavily tipped for major literary prizes, Thurman's biography of Colette is a vivid portrait of the author of the erotically reckless Claudine novels. Colette bared her breast to raucous applause in the French music-hall and became a celebrity of the lesbian demimonde. While building a reputation for hugely popular fiction, drama, memoir, critcism and scandal, Colette became the Baroness de Jouvenal, the wife of Paris's most infuential (and sexually charismatic) political journalist.

Helen Parr and Cedric Delves in conversation with Arthur Denaro

Across an Angry Sea/Our Boys

Winter Weekend 2018, 

The book Across an Angry Sea: The SAS in The Falklands War is an account of Special Forces actions by Lieutenant General Sir Cedric Delves, who commanded D Company, 22 SAS in the South Atlantic. Parr's Our Boys: The Story of a Paratrooper is partly about the Falklands War itself and the terrible things that the Paras endured, and the terrible things that some of them did, but it is also about the white working class of the 1970s and why some men born into this class ended up marching across an island that most of them had never heard of. Delves commanded the SAS at every level before becoming Commander of the Field Army. Parr is a Hennessy Award-winning historian who teaches International Relations at Keele University. Chaired by Major General Arthur Denaro.

The Seven

Hay Festival 2016, 

On Easter Sunday, 23 April 1916, the Irish Republican Brotherhood’s military council put their names to the Proclamation of the Irish Republic, declaring they were the provisional government of an Ireland free from British rule. In effect, each man had knowingly signed his own death warrant. Since then, the seven have been eulogised and used as political weapons by many. To challenge the morality of the Rising was to be denounced as unpatriotic, even un-Irish. One hundred years on, however, there is an increasing recognition within Ireland that it’s time for the founding fathers to come under proper scrutiny.

Design as an Attitude

Hay Festival 2018, 

At a time when so many aspects of our lives are changing at a relentless speed and on an unprecedented scale, design is increasingly seen as a way to help us benefit from the opportunities created by those changes (and to avoid their dangers). One of the world's leading design and culture commentators maps with resourcefulness and creativity how design is responding to an age of intense economic, political and ecological instability. Public interest is soaring as a new generation of designers is using advanced technologies to pursue their political and environmental objectives in increasingly ambitious projects, as well as to reinvent the objects and spaces we use every day.

Yuval Noah Harari en conversación con Peter Florence

De animales a dioses (Sapiens). Una breve historia de la humanidad.

Cartagena 2016, 
Hace 100.000 años había por lo menos seis diferentes especies de humanos en la tierra. Hoy solo queda una: nosotros, el Homo sapiens. ¿Cómo venció nuestra especie la lucha por la dominación?, ¿por qué nuestros ancestros nómadas se unieron para crear ciudades y reinos?, ¿cómo llegamos a creer en dioses, naciones y derechos humanos; a confiar en el dinero, los libros y las leyes; y a estar esclavizados por la burocracia, los horarios y el consumismo? Y, ¿cómo va a ser el mundo en el próximo milenio? En De animales a dioses. Una breve historia de la humanidad, el catedrático de historia de la Universidad de Jerusalén, Yuval Noah Harari, explora todas estas cuestiones, apoyándose en la biología, la antropología,
la paleontología y la economía. En conversación con el fundador del Hay Festival, Peter Florence.
