We're an independent gallery bookshop based in Machynlleth, mid Wales. It's our blend of bookshop, selling a carefully selected collection of reads and pick-up-and-flick-through books – and gallery space to inspire you while you're browsing. We host events too, book readings, author talks, photography and art openings.

Part of the Pop-up Poetry Fortnight

The first woman to win the prestigious Chair at the National Eisteddfod in 2001, Mererid has since won the National Crown and continues to be in great demand as a poet, tutor and television presenter. She is also a highly accomplished translator, mainly working between German and Welsh. She is also a Fellow of the Academi.

Mererid's new collection, Nes Draw, was published in 2015 and Singing in Chains: Listening to Welsh Verse (2004) is being re-published by Gomer this month. Both titles and some recent translations for children will be available to buy at the event.
