John Osmond was the director of the independent Welsh think-tank, the Institute of Welsh Affairs, until May 2013. He has contributed to numerous books on the subjects of Welsh politics, culture and devolution, and is also a former journalist and television producer. 

His latest book is the novel ‘Ten Million Stars are Burning’. Set in the 1970s, this documentary novel plays out against the political and cultural events experienced in Wales during the tumultuous and exciting era around the first devolution referendum. The story is told through the eyes of two fictional characters: Owen James, a journalist, and Rhiannon Jones-Davies, a language activist, student, and later a television producer.

 

In this event, John will be interviewed by Jon Gower. Jon has filled half a bookshelf with his own titles in Welsh and English, including Y Storïwr (Wales Book of the Year, 2012), Norte (shortlisted for same prize, 2016) and The Story of Wales. He is a former BBC Wales arts and media correspondent. His latest book is the noir crime thriller ‘Y Duwch’, published in June this year. 

 

Tickets for this event are £5.
