HAY FESTIVAL 2018 PROGRAMME

We are pleased to announce the full programme for Hay Festival 2018.

Event 85

Oliver Jeffers introduced by Tore Leifer

Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth

Venue: RAMPEN

Jeffers’ new book is inspired by the birth of his son, and started with the strangeness of being a parent and the realization that new life is a blank slate. As the book unfolded, so did global events, and he felt that he had to re-emphasise the simple principles of humanity. He wanted his son to know that while we are all unique individuals, we are all in this together. Join Jeffers as he tells some stories, explains some stuff, draws some pictures, answers some questions, and generally clears a few things up.

Jeffers’ picture books include The Incredible Book Eating Boy, This Moose Belongs to Me, The Day Crayons Quit  and its sequel The Day the Crayons Came Home (both No1 New York Times bestsellers) and Once Upon an Alphabet. All have been have been translated into more than 30 languages. Working in collaboration with Studio AKA, the author’s second book Lost and Found was developed into an animated short film that has received more than 60 awards, including a BAFTA for Best Animated Short Film.
