Giveaway – Day 5 – Tony Robinson & Christopher Paolini

Christopher Paolini

Only 10 days left until we throw open the gates of Dairy Meadows and welcome you all in.

In anticipation of all the jollity to come we’ve got books and tickets to giveaway here everyday right up until the festival.  Each day will bring a new pair of star writers, and a new chance to win tickets to see them at Hay along with copies of their latest/biggest/most phenomenal books (full T&Cs below).

Today’s storming writers are Tony RobinsonChristopher Paolini.

Tony Robinson’s Weird World of Wonders is a fantastic new history series – our Scribblers couldn’t get enough of them when they arrived in the office! So to discover why you should never ignore an omen and how to defeat an army who are riding elephants make sure you check them out.

Christopher Paolini’s genuine love of fantasy and myth is unmistakable – his Inheritance cycle has taken him to the top of the best-seller charts and into the hearts of millions of fans.  We’re thrilled that Hay is on Christopher’s world tour – make sure you don’t miss him!

    My favourite period of history is the 9th and 10th century Britain.

  2. Alasdair Cavaye says:

    My favourite period of History was WW II as a lot of lessons were learnt in a very short period of time.

  3. Ion says:

    Yesterday seems to be an interesting period or the night before. Thinking about them now always sheds light on the varying reasons that led people to say and act as they did.

    If I ever travelled back in time I would only want to be an observer. If that was possible then it’s got to be the Court of Henry XIII, just to find out exactly what happened.

  5. Ann Wright says:

    The Tudor period, not for the life at Court but for all the discoveries and advancements in industry and trade, education, inventions, growth in literacy and performing arts. Quite a time for things to happen.
