Collection


Here at the George Ewart Evans Centre for Storytelling we are lucky enough to have been donated a collection of Evans’ books by his children, who were also kind enough to provide us with a copy of one of their family photos of their father, which you can see at the top of this page. The collection also houses a number of titles by other authors examining storytelling and oral history. The collection is housed in the library here in our Cardiff building and is accessible by appointment, please email John Wright to make an appointment.

The British Library holds a collection of George Ewart Evans’ oral history recordings.
