The Story of Books

The Story of Books is an initiative to create a dynamic working museum that celebrates the ongoing story of books. 

Through collaboration with experts and enthusiasts, The Story of Books creates meaningful experiences where stories are told and books are made.

The first major project from The Story of Books is the production of UNICORNS, ALMOST – a play written by Owen Sheers, directed by John Retallack and designed by Lucy Hall. Also features a bookshop and exhibition (at 20 Castle Street, Hay-on-Wye) and book published by Faber Drama.
