24 Jan Making Myth | Interview with Jennifer Saint
Jennifer Saint, author of Ariadne, joins us in this episode of the Love Your Library podcast. Her debut novel breathes new life into the myth that many of us know as “Theseus and the Minotaur”, retelling the story through the eyes of Ariadne and Phaedra, the two princesses of Crete. Jennifer speaks with us about the inspiration behind her novels and why it’s so important that we revisit our classical myths with a new lens.
We were also joined by Chris from the central libraries team to talk about his book recommendation Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. A dystopian thriller that has shaped our understanding of history, politics, and culture since its publication.
There’s still plenty of time to sign up to the Winter Reading Challenge and read any four books, on your own or with your loved ones, before Saturday 26 February.
