Show Notes

Today I'm chatting with Emma Corfield-Walters, co-owner of Book-ish in Crickhowell, Powys, Wales, about diversifying your library, Welsh writers, the beauty of Wales, and what it takes to open an indie bookshop.

Book-ish is an independent bookshop in Crickhowell, Powys, in the UK. The bookshop thrives because it’s more than a bookshop: it’s a community endeavor.  

Besides hosting book clubs, discussion groups, game nights, and quizzes, owners Emma and Andrew Corfield-Walters co-run the Crickhowell Literary Festival and led the charge in setting up Totally Locally Crickhowell, supporting the other independent business on the high street with marketing, e-commerce, and mutual support online.

In 2020, Book-ish was awarded the British Book Awards’ Independent Bookshop of the Year.
