John Boyne in conversation with Inés Martín Rodrigo. THE UPHEAVAL OF LITERATURE

Well known for the bestseller The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas (David Fickling Books, 2006) –a novel that won two Irish Book Awards, was shortlisted for a British Book Award, has been translated into over forty books, has sold over five million copies, and was made into a film in 2008–, John Boyne has also written several other works of fiction. These include Mutiny on the Bounty, The Date, The Thief of Time, Noah Barleywater Runs Away, This House is Haunted and A History of Loneliness. His latest novel to be published in Spanish, Las furias invisibles del corazón, (The Heart’s Invisible Furies), which Salamandra published in May this year, is an ambitious journey into the turbulent world of love and desire in search of the instinctive human need for affection and happiness. This fine portrait of Ireland’s recent past shows the talent of Boyne, but also a personal side, since this is one of the most autobiographical of his works.

John Boyne will talk to the journalist and writer Inés Martín Rodrigo, author of the novel Azules son las horas.

Event with simultaneous translation from English to Spanish and from Spanish to English

Enric Juliana, Sandrine Morel, Reinhard Spiegelhauer in conversation with Miquel Molina. EUROPE COMING OUT OF THE PANDEMIC: NORTH-SOUTH RELATIONSHIPS AND ELECTORAL PROCESSES

A year ago, the Hay Festival Segovia staged a debate among journalists from Spain, Italy, Portugal and the Netherlands regarding European management of the pandemic. The European Union ended up reaching a historical agreement to mobilise 750 billion Euros, but the negotiation process created strong tensions between North and South. Now Europe is facing the post-covid era with elections in Germany and France, and internal tensions in southern countries. This is the time to continue the debate, but with different actors. On this occasion we present Sandrine Morel, Spain correspondent for Le Monde; Reinhard Spiegelhauer, Chief Correspondent in Spain and Portugal of ARD (the German public radio and television corporation); and Enric Juliana, Assistant Editor of La Vanguardia in Madrid.

Moderated by Miquel Molina, also Assistant Editor of La Vanguardia, a newspaper that is celebrating its 140th year in 2021.

Lucy Kellaway in conversation with Santiago Íñiguez. HOW TO REINVENT ONESELF

The current circumstances have meant that many of us have had to reconsider our future and seek new goals. Lucy Kellaway, however, did so years ago: aged 57, she decided to leave her successful career as a Financial Times columnist and start a new life teaching at a London secondary school. Kellaway has recently published a new book: Re-educated, in which she tells the story of how she changed her life. This writer and educator, co-founder of the educational charity Now Teach, which offers new strategies to teachers, returns to the Hay Festival to talk about her experiences with Santiago Íñiguez, President of the IE University, author of books such as Global Leaders and The Learning Curve and world expert on education.

Garazi Sánchez in conversation with Félix Jordán de Urríes. EFFORT AND AWARENESS ON A SURFBOARD

Garazi Sánchez first tried surfing aged 7, and at 14 was travelling the world to surf. At 25 he was Spanish champion and number two in Europe. A back injury almost ended his surfing, but with the recovery of his mobility he also became aware of the need to protect the marine environment; although it was a place he felt at home, it was something that had previously been unknown to him, having only been the place where he sought the perfect wave. From this experience came his involvement in the documentary, Vergüenza, which he has produced and co-directed with Iker Elorrieta, in order to draw attention to the dangers to our oceans and what will happen if we do not stop our destructive behaviour.

He will talk about his desire to go to the Olympic Games and his fight for a living ocean with Félix Jordán de Urríes, General Manager of the Deporte Joven Foundation.

Ingrid Betancourt and Juan Manuel Santos in conversation with Jesús Vigorra. HOW TO CONSOLIDATE PEACE IN A SUSTAINABLE WORLD

For years, the political scientist and human rights defender Ingrid Betancourt was constantly in the international news. In February 2002, as a candidate for the presidency of her country, Colombia, she was abducted by FARC and was not subsequently freed until 2008. The former Colombian president and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Juan Manuel Santos, was one of the main figures behind the peace agreement with this guerrilla group. Both have a long career working in favour of human rights and have also worked in ecology and sustainable development. During her time as a representative in the Colombian parliament, Betancourt, who was later a senator, created the country’s first ecological party. During his time in government, Santos, the author of a number of books, promoted sustainable development goals, and through the Compaz Foundation has worked to empower victims, consolidate peace and defend the environment.

They will talk about the events in which they have been centrally involved, and whose importance goes beyond the borders of Colombia. A figure who has become a global spokesperson against abduction and the man who was key to the peace agreement have spoken through the pages of the book Una conversación pendiente, and at this festival event will talk live about matters of urgency that affect our globalized world.

Betancourt and Santos will talk to the journalist Jesús Vigorra, the producer and presenter of Canal Sur Radio’s La mañana de Andalucia

The event will be introduced by Diego del Alcázar Benjumea, the Executive Vice-president of IE University.

Manuel Bartual, Bely Basarte and Olga Subirós in conversation with Marta Fernández. CREATIVITY IN THE DIGITAL ENVIRONMENT

This event is presented as a space for dialogue between creativity and the digital revolution, with the leading role of creators and their relationship with technology. We will attend to the encounter of the transmedia fiction, the music in digital platforms, the Big Data and the urban design and the ability of digital art to excite and to make us think about relevant subjects such as the environment and the sustainability.

Manuel Bartual has written and published stories for over twenty years. He has published comic strips (El Jueves), directed short and full movies (Todos tus secretos, Premio CANAL+ a Mejor Película en el Festival de Cine de Málaga).

Bely Basarte is singer-songwriter. She has worked for Disney performing songs from The Beauty and The Beast and has published two albums with Universal Music: Desde mi otro cuarto and El camino que no me llevó a Roma. But these achievements came after her beginnings uploading own works and covers online and posting them on Youtube, where she has reached hundreds of thousands of followers. Olga Subirós, architect, will participate in the digital art and sustainability section. Subirós is the author, along with the studio 300.000 Km/s and the singer María Arnal, from the immersive installation ‘Aire’, which was presented by Instituto Ramón Llul in the Bienal de Arquitectura de Venecia and proposes tools against the climate crisis. Subiros’ intervention will be preceeded by the screening of a video where the French artist Joanie Lemercier explains his work, specialized in exploring and amplying the posibilities of the projected light in the space. He is also a pioneer of videomapping. He is the author of the installation ‘Montagne, cent qutorze mille polygones’ which opening, prior to this debate, open the events of Hay Festival.

Through the testimonies of the creators themselves, chaired by the Journalist Marta Fernández, some of the most breaking subjects of the use of digital technology in the context of the artistic creation and the cultural communication will be discussed.
