Y Bachgen, y Wahadden, y Llwynog a’r Ceffyl made Hay Festival's Book of the Month
We're absolutely delighted to hear that Y Bachgen, y Wahadden, y Llwynog a’r Ceffyl, written by Charlie Mackesy and translated by Mererid Hopwood, has been made Hay Festival's November 2021 Book of the Month. This book, originally published in English titled The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse, invites you to enter the world of his four unlikely friends, discovering their stories and their most important life lessons.
Acclaimed poet and Hay Festival fellow Mererid Hopwood is the translator behind an extraordinary Welsh edition - Y Bachgen, y Wahadden, y Llwynog a’r Ceffyl - bringing its inspiring message to readers in Welsh for the first time.
What Hay Festival say about the Book of the Month: "Hay Festival's Book of the Month is our monthly recommendation of a title we love and think holds particular resonance today. This is our chance to celebrate great works of fiction, non-fiction and poetry – new and old."
Hay Festival will be holding an event to celebrate this book on the 9th of November. This will be a live Q&A with author Charlie Mackesy and translator Mererid Hopwood. You can register to join for FREE here: https://www.hayfestival.com/p-18205-charlie-mackesy-mererid-hopwood.aspx
