Reimagined Fairytales with Jessie Burton

The Restless Girls

Hay Festival 2019, 

Think you know all about fairytales ? Think again! Join bestselling author Jessie Burton as she discusses The Restless Girls: the "wild, wise, generous" and "ferocious" retelling of the Brothers Grimm’s The Twelve Dancing Princesses with Claire Armitstead from the Guardian. Imagine a fairytale that doesn't need a dashing prince to save the day. A dazzling, feminist reinterpretation of a classic fairytale for the modern world, The Restless Girls is a timeless story of family, sisterhood, imagination and bravery.
