And so the final event to publicise the ‘Hinterland: Ceredigion Landcapes’ book based on the television series of the same name took place at the marvellous Drwm Theatre at the National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth on Saturday 21st October.
And what a wonderful finale it was. Attended by yours truly, Hinterland creator Ed Thomas and novelist Cynan Jones who wrote some of the scripts for the series, the talk was chaired by Kate Woodward from Aberystwyth University’s film studies department. Two talks, one at 11.00 am and the second at 2.00 pm, were packed with eager and engaged audiences.
The ‘Hinterland’ book tour got on the road in May when myself, Ed Thomas and co-creator Ed Talfan joined Jon Gower at the Hay Festival. With three intervening literary festivals under our belt we arrived in Aberystwyth on the same day as Storm Brian! Thankfully it didn’t deter the audiences.
We met lots of great people along the way, partook of the odd lubricated lunch and had fun. Huge thanks to my publisher Graffeg for their support and confidence in the project. Now we just have to get out there and sell it!
