Welcome to the Hay Festival 2021 Bookshop!

A treasure-house of brilliant, thoughtful and entertaining writing. Here you will find all the titles featured on our programme.

Books have been more important than ever in the last year. They are our most precious and most eloquent medium, showing us the world as it is and as it might be. 'A book is not a learning resource. It's the knife that picks the lock of your isolation.' (Frank Cottrell-Boyce)

We have obtained signed bookplates from most of our authors so that we can offer the signed copies which are such a feature of every Hay Festival. Check individual titles for details.

Happy reading!
