20th May 2024

To coincide with a few days in Hay-on-Wye, this week on the Post we have book towns. Later this week the famous Festival which was founded in 1987 will begin, and this small town (pop. 1,500) will be packed with readers and book-buyers. Richard Booth opened his first shop here in 1962 and established Hay as a centre for the secondhand book trade. There are now twenty bookshops (including Richard Booth's, above) and all year round Hay is a lively, creative little town with a lovely Thursday market and all the books you could wish for.
