Hay Festival Europa28: Writing by women on the future of Europe
A being from another time and planet visits Earth, and takes human form for one year, as a European… A young woman’s tyrannical father has arranged her marriage to an influential suitor, but a mythical bull from her dreams comes to her rescue… A group of students in Tallinn’s Freedom Square imagine where the rise in right-wing fascism may have taken Europe by 2050…
Bringing together 28 acclaimed women writers, artists, scientists and entrepreneurs – one from each EU country – this powerful and timely anthology from Hay Festival looks at an ever-changing Europe from a variety of different perspectives and offers hope and insight into how it might evolve. Participants include Asja Bakić, Zsófia Bán, Annelies Beck, Silvia Bencivelli, Hilary Cottam, Lisa Dwan, Yvonne Hofstetter, Nora Ikstena, Maarja Kangro, Kapka Kassabova, Sofia Kouvelaki, Carine Krecké, Caroline Muscat, Nora Nadjarian, Ioana Nicolaie, Bronka Nowicka, Tereza Nvotová, Ana Pessoa, Edurne Portela, Julya Rabinowich, Karolina Ramqvist, Apolena Rychlíková, Renata Salecl, Leïla Slimani, Janne Teller, Saara Turunen, Žydrūnė Vitaitė and Gloria Wekker.
