The Debut Novelist Discusses Her New Book, Assembly
The Hay Festival launches its 34th spring edition, broadcasting for free online from Hay-on-Wye to the world 26 May–6 June. Over 12 days, more than 200 acclaimed writers, global policy makers, historians, poets, pioneers and innovators join together to inspire, examine, and entertain in events for all ages. All events are closed-captioned and available to watch for free on the Hay Player.
Natasha Brown’s debut novel, Assembly, is about the stories we live within—of race and class, safety and freedom, winners and losers. And it is about one woman daring to take control of her own story, even at the cost of her life. Here, she talks with Indian writer and activist Meena Kandasamy (When I Hit You) at the Hay Festival.
