'The Hours' - Aberhonddu / Brecon:



Reading at the wonderful 'The Hours' bookshop in Brecon, last event of the Brecon Women's Festival 2013. A wonderful bookshop / spent time in Brecon Secondary School, Ysgol y Bannau, reading from my new novel ' Y Pussaka Hud' and then reading from 'Murmur' - Bloodaxe, - Oh and before that I planted a tree for the Woodland Trust -- a rowan tree. A full but rewarding day.
/////
Darlleniad mewn siop lyfrau hyfryd yn Aberhonddu o'r enw 'The Hours'. Digwyddiad dwyieithog olaf Gwyl Menywod Aberhonddu 2013. Treuliais y bore yn Ysgol Uwchradd Aberhonddu, yna yn yr ysgol gynradd yn lansio fy nofel newydd i blant o'r enw 'Y Pussaka Hud' -- gwnes hyd yn oed blannu coeden i'r Ymddiriedolaeth y Coedlannau - sef criafolen. Diwrnod llawn i'r ymylon ond llawen.
