Pilar Quintana at the Hay Festival!

Thea Lenarduzzi and Pilar Quintana in conversation with Daniel Hahn
THE POWER OF FAMILY
Venue: The Hive
Thea Lenarduzzi’s Dandelions is a family memoir and social history which explores the evocative power of shared language and stories tracing four generations of migration between Italy and England. Colombian author Pilar Quintana’s The Abyss leads us brilliantly into the lonely heart of the child we have all once been, driven by fear of abandonment, through the character of impressionable eight-year-old Claudia. The authors discuss family relations and gender inequality through their books, with author and translator Daniel Hahn.
