At this year’s Festival, we’ve teamed up with our sponsors Waterstones to bring you exclusive interviews and backstage content.
Throughout the festival we’ll be bringing you interviews with poets and novelists, historians and scientists, dancers and actors, thinkers and memoirists, illustrators and children’s writers – some you’ll know and some you’ve perhaps yet to discover…
We will be speaking to Jung Chang about her history of the Empress Dowager Cixi; Graham Nash about his incredible journey from Blackpool (and Salford) boy to Rock and Roll royalty; as well as mother and daughter team Shirley Hughes and Clara Vulliamy about their beautiful new children’s book series Dixie O’Day.
We are also incredibly excited to be able to bring you an exclusive interview with Jennifer Saunders about her Bonkers life; a conversation with Douglas Coupland who we’re sure is not the Worst. Person. Ever.; and even a chat with Brian May about 19th century stereoscopes, and probably badgers too.
Like the festival itself, you’ll find something for everyone here on the blog over the course of the next eleven days. Visit the Waterstones blog for even more exclusive content
