Highlights of the 2018 Wales Book of The Year Award presented by Gwion Hallam.

Gwion Hallam presents highlights of the 2018 Wales Book of the Year Awards at the Tramshed, Cardiff. This is one of Wales’ most prestigious literary events and we will be there to savour the atmosphere and to learn which books and authors have won this year’s prizes. Following the ceremony, Gwion will discuss the results with Beti George and Caryl Lewis, two of this year’s judges, and ask unofficial commentators, Ian Rowlands and Bethan Mair, about their reactions to this year’s awards.
