Just 16 miles from Carmarthen, the cosy town of Llandeilo is hosting a book fair, on April 30th.

With free entry, and something for all the family, 24 Welsh authors of every type of genre, including history, children’s books, psychological thrillers and non-fiction will be there, ready to chat and give insights into their craft.

Set up by author Christoph Fischer, and helped by Thorne Moore and Judith Barrow, all in the photo above, the fair will offer a Short Story Competition, readings, workshops and talks, and a panel for aspiring authors.

And there are more treats ahead for Welsh booklovers later in the year.

The Tenby Book Fair, part of the Tenby Arts Festival is in September:

Great to see Wales getting so bookish!
