The 16th Hay festival is drawing to a close but patrons will find plenty to occupy them over the final weekend.
75,000 people are expected to visit Hay-on-Wye
The festival has already heard from such literary giants as Canadian Booker-prize winning author Margaret Atwood, American writer Don Delillo and Britain's Hanif Kureishi.
Earlier in the week, first-time writer Charlotte Williams won the Welsh Book of the Year for her story of her trans-continental search for her roots.
One of the speakers who will almost certainly draw many visitors is travel writer Bill Bryson, who will be talking to broadcaster Mariella Frostrup.
His wry observations on Britain, Notes from a Small Island, gained him mass popularity among readers.
On Saturday, he is using the festival to launch his new book, A Short History of Nearly Everything, as well as reporting from a recent trip to Kenya.

Broadcaster and author Melvyn Bragg is presenting the third novel in his A Son of War series during his afternoon session.
Later in the day, Booker prizewinner Graham Swift talks about his work, including his most recent novel The Light of Day.
Musical relief is provided in the evening, with a performance from soul diva Alison Moyet, who features songs from her first album in eight years, Hometime.
The last day of the festival offers fans of bodice-ripping Welsh screenwriter Andrew Davies the chance to question him about his adaptations for the small screen, including Pride and Prejudice, Dr Zhivago and Vanity Fair.
Captain Corelli's Mandolin author Louis de Bernieres is in conversation with festival director Peter Florence, who also speaks to yet another Booker winner, Ian McEwan, later in the day.
