Andrew Simms and Anita Roy

Contagious Tales: 22 Modern Folk Tales in the Wake of the Pandemic & Climate Crisis

Venue: Hay Castle Clore Learning Space

Our troubled times are turned into modern folk tales to shine a light on how we got here and and where we go now. Campaigner and co-author Andrew Simms joins nature writer and author of adult and children’s fiction, Anita Roy, for a lively and playful discussion of winter’s tales and the role of storytelling in getting us out of the mess we’re in. Contributors to the book range from leading Earth scientists and economists to playwrights and poets.

‘This book is like being by a campfire, surrounded by your favourite people telling stories that are funny, inventive, full of pathos and truth’– Caroline Lucas MP
