Isabel Allende in conversation with Sophie Hughes

Hay Festival Digital Querétaro presents: The Soul of a Woman

Hay Festival 2021, 

The great Chilean writer discusses her lifelong feminism and hard-won life lessons – "When I say that I was a feminist in kindergarten, I am not exaggerating". Her new book is a wise, warm, defiant manifesto, in which she calls for the need to live one’s old age to the full: "My story is told in every year I have lived and every wrinkle I have”. She talks to translator and editor Sophie Hughes.
