In Rural Wales, a Sundance for Bibliophiles

New York Times story about a literary festival at Hay-on-Wye. Neat picture starts the story. Brief excerpt from story Hay Festival, which began in 1988 as an insane glint in the eye of its organizer, Peter Florence, has expanded and expanded to become one of the world’s best-known and most exciting literary events ; the “Woodstock of the mind,” as former President Clinton, a participant several years ago, put it. (Think of it as a literary Sundance festival, minus the Hollywood swag.)
