Due to unforeseen circumstances, Hernan Ronsino and Esmé Weijun Wang will not be participating in this event.

To mark our position as the world’s oldest literature festival and to celebrate the wonderful global network of book festivals, we’ve partnered with seven international festivals in our 70th year. Come and hear their nominated writers over breakfast: Chris Tse from Verb Festival (Wellington), Wana Udobang from Ake Arts and Book Festival (Lagos), Kanako Nishi from Tokyo International Literature Festival, Nicole Flattery from International Literature Festival Dublin and Sarah Henstra from Toronto International Festival of Authors. Chaired by Daniel Hahn.
