In 2023, Hay Festival made alliances with international organisations to create two anthologies for thinking about the world we live in, in the light of the complex history that has moulded us. Exploradores, soñadores y ladrones was created together with the British Museum, and for the book six writers dived into the museum collections in order to bring to the surface a new compilation of texts that question and reimagine predominant narratives. The project Verdades compartidas was run together with the International Center of Transitional Justice (ICTJ). This anthology offers the writings of ten Latin American authors who imagine and write about Colombia after the peace process. Selva Almada (Argentina), a contributor to the British Museum book, and Nona Fernández (Chile), a participant in Verdades compartidas, will talk to Ana Cristina Restrepo about the two projects.

This celebrated Spanish author will talk to Alfonso Buitrago about his most recent books. Javier Moro, one of the bestselling Spanish-language writers, is also a journalist and has worked as a screenwriter and film producer in Hollywood. His books include Senderos de libertad (1992), El pie de Jaipur (1995), Las montañas de Buda (1997), Five Past Midnight in Bhopal (2001, a work written together with Dominique Lapierre), Passion India, The Red Sari, El imperio eres tú (2011 Planeta Prize) and, more recently Nos quieren muertos, which the author will talk about at this event. This book, which is both an exciting read and a rigorous study, is about a key figure for understanding contemporary Venezuela: Leopoldo López. Upon being jailed in 2014, after leading massive protests against the Maduro government, López became a symbol of the struggle for democracy in the country.
