Hay Festival 2019 – with Lauren St John
May 28, 2019, 4pm at Starlight Stage, Hay Festival
Lauren St John grew up surrounded by animals on a farm and a game reserve in Zimbabwe while Piers Torday was introduced to nature by being taken on storytelling walks in the forests of Northumberland by his father. Since then both have been passionate about animals, their environments and the need to protect them. Join Lauren and Piers as they discuss their books and the importance for all of saving animals from extinction, in conversation with Ben Garrod, author of The Chimpanzees and Me.
