Jacek Dehnel, Mick Kitson and Sharlene Teo

Fictions: The New Generation

Hay Festival 2018, 

A conversation and reading with three of the most extraordinary young talents in international fiction. Dehnel’s Lala is a lyrical and moving Polish family saga set against the turbulent backdrop of 20th century Europe. Lala is an independent woman who has survived some of the most turbulent events of her times. As she senses the first signs of dementia, she battles to keep her memories alive through her stories, telling her grandson tales of a life filled with love, betrayal and extraordinary acts of courage. Kitson's debut Sal is a disturbing, uplifting story of survival, of the kindness of strangers, and the irrepressible power of sisterly love; a love that can lead us to do extraordinary and unimaginable things. Set in Singapore, and spanning 50 years, Teo’s Ponti is a sweeping story of three women and the guilt that ties them to each other. Teo was the winner of the inaugural Deborah Rogers Foundation award in 2016. Chaired by Georgina Godwin.

Rainforest: Dispatches from Earth’s Most Vital Frontlines

Hay Festival 2018, 

Rainforests are the lungs of our planet – regulators of the Earth's temperature and weather. They are also home to 50 per cent of the world's animals and plants – which for centuries have been the source of many of our key medicines. And yet we’ve all heard of their systematic destruction; the razing of trees to make way for cattle or plantations of oil palms, the disenfranchisement of indigenous peoples, and the corruption that leads to illegal logging and pollution. But the great environmentalist tells the other, inspirational story we’ve almost never heard: what is being done, and can be done in future, to protect the forests and the 1.6 billion people who depend upon them.

Kate Reddy is counting down the days until she is 50, but not in a good way. Fifty, in Kate’s mind, equals invisibility. And with hormones that have her in shackles, teenage children who need her but won’t talk to her and ailing parents who aren’t coping, Kate is in the middle of a sandwich that she isn’t even allowed to eat because of the calories. The long-awaited sequel to the bestselling comedy I Don’t Know How She Does It is just as funny and wise, and unputdownable.
