We proudly welcome the winner of the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize to the Book Festival. Maria Ressa faces 100 years behind bars in her home country. Her ‘crime’? Tracking the lies told by her government. In How to Stand Up to a Dictator, she lays bare how we are in the grip of untruths and propaganda, and how we can forge an effective response. Join us for an event that grows ever more relevant.
