Jayne Joso & Deborah Kay Davies | Hay Festival

Dylan Moore hosts this conversation about two extraordinary novels. In Jayne Joso’s latest novel From Seven to the Sea (Seren 2019) seven-year-old Esther must negotiate adult dysfunction, and a school environment that exposes her to further prejudice and injustice. The novel is a window onto the world of a child who rejects convention and expectation. Deborah Kay Davies’ Tirzah and the Prince of Crows is set in a remote valley in Wales in 1974. As sixteen year old Tirzah struggles against the confines of her community, juggling everyone’s expectations and trying to find her own way in the world, life takes an unexpected turn, ultimately teaching her that freedom springs from within. Tickets: £8.00. For further information and to book visit the Festival website: www.hayfestival.com
