Salena Godden in conversation with Claire Callender

Salena Godden joined us at Sea Change 2019 as part of the amazing Rough Trade Books session that also included Martha Sprackland, Ana da Silva and Charlotte Newman. We were thrilled to capture Salena in conversation later that afternoon with our dear friend and neighbour Claire Callender, covering life, pessimism and inevitably death.

Recorded at High Cross House in Dartington during the 2019 Sea Change Festival.
