As some of you may have gathered from social media, I’ve been busy-beeing away running the Hay Festival Twitter feed again this year. What a joy it’s been too: so many insightful, thought-provoking ideas flying around. Amazing to be there to help celebrate 30 years of Hay – I’m totally exhausted and completely inspired!

As well as Twitter, I wrote a summary of the industry news from the first half of the Festival for BookBrunch, and also joined the journalists in the media room to write a few Facebook posts for Hay:

Evan Davis on why we have reach peak bullsh*t and what we can do about it
Writer and director Julia Leigh on the rollercoaster of IVF
Neurosurgeon Henry Marsh on why it’s more interesting to discuss failures
Frank Cottrell-Boyce on laying down the sunshine by reading

A huge, huge thank you to Hay for having me back on their team again this year and an equally big shout out to all the lovely friends I made. Here’s to books and reading and wonderful, amazing, out-of-the-box thoughts!
