Library Of Wales: Authors Disagree Over Books' Funding

Posted at 11:34AM Sunday 02 Dec 2012

A call has been made for a scheme which republishes classic Welsh books that have gone out of print to continue to receive public funding.

Wales Book of the Year winner Jon Gower backs the Library of Wales series, which has sold 50,000 copies since it was launched in 2006.

It costs the Welsh government £50,000 a year for the Welsh Books Council scheme.

But some critics have argued that financial support should be scrapped.
