Elena Pala, John Retallack & Sandro Veronesi: The World of the Hummingbird

Sandro Veronesi’s international bestselling novel, The Hummingbird, is transformed into an exclusive, experimental event for the Book Festival by the team who adapted it for BBC Radio 3. Experience the impressionistic, dreamlike life of ‘the hummingbird’ – Marco Carrera – through voices, soundscape, music and authentic textures of Italy. Stay on for a discussion with Veronesi, translator Elena Pala and playwright John Retallack.
