Listened to the fabulous Roddy Doyle this evening. I can't wait for his book to be published here (not until October. Sadness)
This was rather wonderful. Natalie Haynes races through the whole of the Iliad as the truly wonderful Chris Riddell live draws it. Fair play to both, that was an absolute joy to watch. "A Thousand Ships" was already on the TBR (having really loved Pat Barker's "Silence of the Girls") but it's just jumped way up the list. #HayFestival
After yesterday's #Hayfestival talk I treated myself. Now here's hoping I can actually get some reading done.
First talk today "How to argue with a racist" by Adam Rutherford. #HayFestival
Jon Sopel on Trump's Whitehouse at #HayFestival now. Saw him at hay last year (or was it 2 years ago) discussing his first book about the Trump campaign. Highly amusing.
Just finished Rutger Bregman talking to Lily Cole about his book, Humankind. Really excellent talk. Well worth a watch and should be available on #HayFestival site for free. Sorry for terrible pic 😂
First of today's #HayFestival talks, Greg Jenner talking about "Dead Famous" and the history of celebrity. One for the TBR I think!
