Martin Shaw talks to Fiona Mountain

Smoke Hole

Hay Festival 2021, 

In Smoke Hole, the master storyteller and wilderness guide Martin Shaw invites us to use stories to face the complexities of contemporary life, from fake news, parenthood, climate crises to addictive technology and more. We are urged to reclaim our imagination and untangle ourselves from modern menace to find the truth in wilderness and beauty.

​​Martin is in conversation with the award-winning novelist Fiona Mountain whose latest book, The Keeper of Songs, is out on July 2nd.
