Cicely Saunders: Care for the Dying

Hay Festival 2018, 

Clark honours the life and work of the pioneer of the hospice movement. His biography shows how Cicely Saunders and the hospice she created, St Christopher’s, played a crucial role in shaping a new discourse of care at the end of life.  From the pessimism of ‘there is nothing more we can do’, medicine and healthcare gradually adopted a more purposeful approach to care at the end of life, which came to be known as ‘palliative care’.

Windblown: Landscape, Legacy and Loss

Hay Festival 2018, 

The Great Storm of 1987 is etched firmly into the national memory. Everyone who was there that night remembers how hurricane-force winds struck southern Britain without warning, claiming 18 lives, uprooting more than 15 million trees and reshaping the landscape for future generations. Thirty years on, the discovery of an old photograph inspires the author to make a journey into that landscape. Weaving her own memories and personal experiences with those of fishermen and lighthouse keepers, rough sleepers and refugees, she creates a unique portrait of this extraordinary event and a moving exploration of legacy and loss. Chaired by Corisande Albert.
