Listen to the Moon

Hay Festival 2015, 
Michael Morpurgo’s much praised novel Listen to the Moon was inspired by a gruesome medal commemorating the sinking of the Lusitania 100 years ago off the coast of Co. Cork, and a newspaper report he came across during his research about a small child being spotted on top of a piano floating among the wreckage. Michael shares this extraordinary story and answers questions from the audience. He also talks about Dreams of Freedom – In Words and Pictures, for which he wrote the introduction. The book combines the words of human rights heroes with illustrations by acclaimed artists. All royalties go to Amnesty International.
