My 1,001 Nights: Tales and Adventures from Morocco

Hay Festival 2019, 

When Alice Morrison first headed out to Morocco, it was to take on one of the most daunting challenges: to run in the famous Marathon des Sables. But as soon as she settled in a flat in Marrakesh she was won over by the people, the spectacular scenery and the ancient alleyways of the souk. Soon she was hiking over the Atlas Mountains, joining nomads to sample their timeless way of life as they crossed the Sahara desert, and finding peace in a tranquil oasis. Alice came to fame with her BBC Two series Morocco to Timbuktu. Chaired by Kitty Corrigan.

19th-century Emigration in British Literature and Art

Hay Festival 2019, 

The explosion of settler emigration during the 19th century to colonies in Canada, Australia and New Zealand was supported and underpinned by a vast outpouring of text including printed emigrants’ letters, manuscript shipboard newspapers and settler fiction. These textual cultures pervaded the cultural imagination of 19th century authors such as Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Gaskell, Catherine Helen Spence and Ford Madox Brown, and provided new means of interrogating representations of space and place, home-making and colonial encounters. Fariha Shaikh is Lecturer in Victorian Literature at the University of Birmingham.

Sir Simon Schama

THE STORY OF THE JEWS

Segovia 2018, 

Jewish history is also the history of Humanity. Now that thousands of people are being forced to leave their native country and to traverse an incredibly tense way looking for a new home, it is worth contemplating again the exile that jews went into over five hundred years ago. Schama's presence in HAY FESTIVAL Segovia coincides with the publication of the second volume from his enormous work ´The Story of the Jews'. Schama covers the expulsion of the jews from Spain in 1492. He navigates among miracles and massacres, persecutions and tolerance, and reaches the beginning of the 20th century, which will mark a turning point, as it was profoundly promising in its first few years.

Simon Schama is professor in History and History of Arts at Columbia University, and a widely awarded author of fourteen history books translated into twenty different languages. Among them, Rembrandt's Eyes (2002), Rise and Fall of the British Empire (2004), and both two volumes from The Story of the Jews'.

Presented by Caroline Michel, CEO of leading literary and talent agency Peters Fraser + Dunlop, Chair of The Hay Festivals.
