Cambria Books author David Thorpe at the Hay Literature Festival promoting his book Stormteller and talking about climate change and new literature featuring climate themes.
From the Daily Telegraph
Climate activists are targeting children through a new range of ‘cli-fi’ – climate fiction – novels which seek to highlight the dangers of global warming.
David Thorpe, author of the book Stormteller, said that children were more open minded and claimed that writers could ‘infect’ their minds with ‘seriously subversive viral ideas’.
He was speaking at the Hay Festival alongside ‘cli-fi’ authors George Marshall and Saci Lloyd.
“I like writing for children because their minds are still forming,” said Mr Thorpe whose novel is set in a coastal Wales ravaged by climate change and rising sea levels.
Stormteller can be purchased from good bookshops, from the Welsh Books Council distribution and from us DIRECT.
