Festival Program 2020

We find ourselves in the midst of a corona virus pandemic and the Norwegian Festival of Literature cannot proceed as originally intended. However we are fortunate to have excellent alternatives to cancellation.

Late May we will hold a magnificent digital literature festival; in September there will be an extensive Pegasus festival in Lillehammer, and in November we will deliver the Sigrid Undset Days.  Beyond this there will be reading circles and individual events from time to time.  In this way we hope that in this time of crisis we can continue to help spread the joy of reading nationally and internationally.
