Adam talks to Festival Director Claire Allen about the upcoming Guernsey Literary Festival. What's in store this year? And what's it like organising a big literary event on a small Channel Island?
Anna Mazzola's acclaimed debut novel, 'The Unseeing', focuses on a real murder case in London in 1837. Sarah Gale, sentenced to death for her role in the murder of Hannah Brown, protests her innocence - so why does she refuse to say what really happened?
Speaking at the Alderney Literary Festival, Anna tells us why she became fascinated with the case, why writing about real historical figures is tricky, and why she thinks we make entertainment out of murder in the first place.
Speaking at the Alderney Literary Festival, historian Anne Sebba discusses her new book, 'Les Parisiennes', about the experience of Parisian women during the Nazi Occupation, and explains why the Occupation of the Channel Islands provides an interesting contrast to that story.
She then discusses her book 'That Woman' on Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor. Eighty years after the Abdication Crisis, Wallis remains a deeply controversial figure - is it time to re-examine her legacy?
