The latest news on Seren’s books, authors, events and prizes.
Come along to the Seren pop-up bookshop in Hay-on-Wye, which will be open for the duration of the Hay Festival – 25 May to 4 June.

You’ll find the pop-up shop in Hay Castle’s Coach House, along the cobbled walkway. Open from 10am every day.
