About Us

Book-ish is owned by Emma Corfield Walters, her husband Andrew, and run by a fab team of enthusiastic book lovers.

It spans three floors of books and toys, a café and an upstairs loft and event space which can seat up to 50 people.

As well as running the bookshop, Emma is also Chair of Totally Locally Crickhowell, a group which supports other local businesses, and co-Director of the 9-day Crickhowell Literary Festival which brings authors to town every Autumn.

When Crickhowell High Street won ‘High Street in Britain 2018’, Emma won the ‘High Street Hero’ Award.

Book-ish runs regular literary events throughout the year.  We hope you will come and see us.
