The Hay 30: Preti Taneja

LAST MONTH our author Preti Taneja appeared at Hay Festival as part of their ‘Hay 30’ - a selection of young novelists, scientists, philosophers, performers and activists who the festival find “inspiring and astonishing” and think “will help imagine and shape the world over the next thirty years.” 

Listen to Preti’s own event - where she talks to Anil Dharkar about Shakespeare, India, and her upcoming debut - here.

While she was at Hay, Preti also interviewed Booker Prize-winning novelist Paul Beatty. The event was filmed by BBC Arts, and is available to watch here


We that are young, Preti Taneja’s novel, will be published by Galley Beggar Press in August 2017.
