When Hadley Freeman found a shoebox filled with her French grandmother’s treasured belongings, it started a decade-long quest to find out their haunting significance and to dig deep into the extraordinary lives of her grandmother, Sala, and her three siblings, Henri, Jacques and Alex Glass. The search takes Hadley from Picasso’s archives in Paris to a secret room in a farmhouse in Auvergne to Long Island and to Auschwitz.

She will be in conversation with Jenny Lacey.

This event is part of Bristol Women’s Literature Festival, which returns for a fourth programme to bring together the best and brightest women writers, thinkers, journalists and academics for a weekend of fascinating conversation, debate, and reflection. It’s the oldest existing festival celebrating women’s history, writing, and cultural heritage. Set up to counter the male dominance of festival line-ups, review pages and prizes, its 2020 programme promises to be the biggest ever as they invite women writers from around the world to the heart of our city. Bristol Women’s Literature Festival is supported by Arts Council England and Bristol Festival of Ideas.
