Wow! A great selection of speakers.
There are so many different authors giving talks, it’s impossible to see everyone!
Looks like it’s going great!!!
It’s going very well, thank you. 😃
Looks like you’re having fun!
On a side note, a ‘few’ finds? 😛 My kind of few 😀
Really enjoying it, thank you! 😃
Must add Hay to my to-be-visited list. The black-rimmed book at the back, in your photo of your finds looks like a Penguin Classic and something medieval – what is it? I’m intrigued.
It’s a great experience – you should definitely go if you’re able. I think the book you mean is Mr Norris Changes Trains by Christopher Isherwood. 😊
Hay now added to our list of holidays to have!
Great photos and GOOD HAUL!
Thanks Liz. Off to see Fiona Sampson this morning!
Am really glad you are enjoying it and so lucky to meet all these authors
Thank you. Yes, it’s a wonderful experience. 😊
How lovely – you really do seem to be having a fabulous time! And of course bookish finds are essential – how could you go to Hay and not come home with books! 🙂
Definitely not possible! 😆
Love theses photos and this post, Paula! What a time you are having!
Thank you, Jennifer. I’m loving every minute!
I was there yesterday too, but saw different speakers – Ruta Sepetys, Rupert Everett, Elif Shafak and Terri Apter. Fantastic day.
I was waiting outside the tent when the Rupert Everett audience emerged!
Excellent haul! Looks like you’re having a blast at the Fest.
Thank you. It has been a fabulous experience!
