Mujeres que dicen verdades. María Elvira Samper, Juanita León y Alejandra de Vengoechea, en conversación con Juan David Correa

Cartagena 2017, 
El momento que vive el mundo es en extremo delicado por cuenta de los ataques a las mujeres. A pesar de la revolución femenina que se dio a mediados del siglo XX, en muchas esferas aún son tratadas como ciudadanas de segunda. El mundo del periodismo no es la excepción. Esta conversación, con tres de las más destacadas periodistas colombianas, indaga en sus vidas y carrera y se pregunta cómo han luchado contra viento y marea por hacerse un lugar en un mundo tradicionalmente reservado a los hombres.

Stephanie Merritt talks to Olivia Cole

Fictions: Gothic

Hay Festival 2018, 

While You Sleep is a pacy psychological thriller that has drawn comparisons with du Maurier, from the writer whose crime fiction appears under her pseudonym S. J. Parris. On a remote Scottish island, the McBride house stands guard over its secrets. A century ago, a young widow and her son died mysteriously there. For Zoe Adams, newly arrived from America, the house offers a refuge from her failing marriage. But her peaceful retreat is disrupted by strange and disturbing events. The locals want her to believe that these incidents are echoes of the McBrides’ dark past. Zoe is convinced the danger is closer at hand, and all too real – but can she uncover the truth before she is silenced?

Germaine Greer

Sappho

Hay Festival 2019, 

From the Greek island of Lesbos, Sappho presented one of the earliest forms of passionate literary subjectivity in the history of Western love poetry. As one of the first female love poets with verse embracing both men and women, her legacy in popular culture lives on and her persona has become etymologically attached to female homosexuality. What do we really know about Sappho? As a professional performer she wrote poems in various personae, yet scholars have persisted in regarding every fragment that survives as autobiographical.

Mystery and magicians, monks, warriors and wandering merchants- people who feared an apocolypse and people who had no idea what year is was or what lay beyond the nearest valley.

Mark Cousins talks to Matt Stadlen

The Story of Looking

Hay Festival 2018, 
Looking can be an act of empathy or aggression. It can provoke desire or express it. And from the blurry, edgeless world we inhabit as infants to the landscape of screens we grow into, looking can define us. In The Story of Looking, filmmaker and writer Mark Cousins takes us on a lightning-bright tour - in words and images - through how our looking selves develop over the course of a lifetime, and the ways that looking has changed through the centuries. From great works of art to tourist photographs, from cityscapes to cinema, through science and protest, propaganda and refusals to look, the false mirrors and great visionaries of looking, this book illuminates how we construct as well as receive the things we see.

Kate Nicholls talks to Jane Garvey

Under the Camelthorn Tree

Hay Festival 2019, 

Nicholls left England to raise her five children in Botswana. Living on a shoestring in a lion conservation camp, she home-schools her family while they also learn at first-hand about the individual lives of wild lions. The setting is exotic but it is also precarious. When Nicholls is subjected to a brutal attack by three men, it threatens to destroy her and her family: post-traumatic stress turns a good mother into a woman who is fragmented and out of control. This powerfully written, raw and often warmly funny memoir is an inspiring account of family love, and a powerful beacon of hope for life after trauma.
