Lesley Glaister, Pan Houston, Barbara Gowdy

Hay Festival 1999, 
Reading and Conversation. Glaister's Sheer Blue Bliss is a thrilling novel about the sources of art and the unpredictable forces of loss and human craving. Houston, the author of the cult classic Cowboys are my Weakness presents her first novel Waltzing the Cat, a beautiful novel about relationships and place with one of the most dazzling aerial sequences ever written. The spectacularly inventive and magical Gowdy returns with her novel The White Bone, a story in which we learn everything anout elephants, their societal structure, their mythology, their language, their beliefs, an entire invented universe which is brilliantly put together, it seems almost logical.

On the Ocean: The Mediterranean and the Atlantic from Prehistory to AD1500

Hay Festival 2018, 

While the land is familiar, even reassuring, the sea is unknown and threatening. Why, then, did humans become seafarers? Part of the answer is that we are conditioned by our genetics to be acquisitive animals: we like to acquire rare materials and we are eager for esoteric knowledge, and society rewards us well for both. And our innate inquisitiveness drives us to explore. The pre-eminent archaeologist looks at the development of seafaring on the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, two contrasting seas, the Mediterranean without a significant tide, enclosed and soon to become familiar, the Atlantic with its frightening tidal ranges, an ocean without end. Chaired by Gabrielle Walker.
