Ours is the age of contagious anxiety. Overwhelmed by events around us, injustice, suffering, and an endless feeling of crisis, how can we nurture the parts of ourselves that hope, trust and believe in something better? And how can we stay sane in this age of division? In a powerful, uplifting plea for conscious optimism, Festival Guest Curator and Booker Prize-nominated novelist Elif Shafak discusses with Clare Clark the power of stories to bring us together and how by listening to each other we can nurture democracy, empathy and our faith in a kinder and wiser future.
