Jasmine Donahaye talks to Francesca Rhydderch

Finding Her Place

Hay Festival 2015, 
The poet is publishing two books this spring: the first biography of Lily Tobias, a courageous, idealistic Welsh woman who wrote compellingly about Jewish life and experience in the twentieth century; and a memoir, Losing Israel. In 2007, in a chance conversation with her mother, a kibbutznik, Donahaye stumbled upon the collusion of her family in the displacement of Palestinians in 1948. When she set out to learn the story of what happened, what she discovered challenged everything she thought she knew about the country and her family, and transformed her understanding of the place, and of herself.

If Only They Didn’t Speak English: Notes from Trump’s America

Hay Festival 2018, 

It's taken 18 months for a TV reality star to go from laughing-stock to leader of the free world. The BBC’s North America Editor has travelled the length and breadth of the United States, experiencing it from a perspective that most of us could only dream of: he has flown aboard Air Force One, interviewed President Obama and has even been described as ‘a beauty’ by none other than Donald Trump. Sopel sets out to answer our questions about a country that once stood for the grandest of dreams but which is now mired in a storm of political extremism, racial division and increasingly perverse beliefs. Chaired by Jim Naughtie.

Charles Handy talks to Andrew St George

The Second Curve

Hay Festival 2015, 

The bracing manifesto of a radical thinker. His books on management – including Understanding Organizations and Gods of Management – have changed the way we view business. His work on broader issues and trends – such as Beyond Certainty – has changed the way we view society.

In The Second Curve, Handy builds on a life’s work to glimpse into the future and see what challenges and opportunities lie ahead. He looks at current trends in capitalism and asks whether it is a sustainable system. He explores the dangers of a society built on credit. He challenges the myth that remorseless growth is essential.

How are both religious sensibility and freedom of expression to be accommodated in pluralistic societies? Is offence the price believers must pay for living in a free society? Or do those who advocate free speech have to accept that in some circumstances other beliefs and principles may have to take priority?
