QI’s Greatest Hits

Hay Festival 2015, 

QI’s very core is ‘the astonishing fact’: painstakingly researched and distilled to a brilliant and shocking clarity. To celebrate the reissue of their backlist, join us for a canter through their best-ever discoveries: Jeeves wasn’t a butler. Coffee isn’t made from beans. Woodlice drink through their bottoms. Light is invisible. Mount Everest isn’t the tallest mountain. Florence Nightingale spent 50 years in bed. There are 613 commandments in the bible. Monkeys pay to look at porn. An hour of endless fun with the QI writing team.

Evelyn Schlag, Patricio Pron and Arno Camenisch talk to Cecilia Dreymüller

Segovia 2011, 
The Swiss Arno Camenisch and the Austrian Evelyn Schlag are two of the most interesting writers in the “peripheral” German speaking world. On the other hand, the Argentine Patricio Pron is doubly “peripheral” with regards to Spanish literature, but also German (which has influenced him considerably). The conversation between the three authors, moderated by the literary critic Cecilia Dreymüller, will allow to address such matters as extraterritoriality, literary periphery and the literary production centres, not only within the German speaking world.
 
Simultaneous translation will be available from German into Spanish.
