The Norwegian Festival of Literature 2020: Scandinavia’s largest digital literature festival
The 26th annual Norwegian Festival of Literature will meet the challenge of the current state of emergency. Authors who were expected in Lillehammer from as far afield as Spain, Argentina, Mexico, USA, Germany and Sweden will instead participate from home, to entertain audiences in their own homes. Join us for this festival of writers from home and abroad on the weekend of the 29th – 31st of May.

With 30,000 visitors and 400 writers and artist from all over the world, the Norwegian Festival of Literature is the largest of its kind in the Nordic countries, with a diverse program catering to readers of all ages.

We guarantee words that will move you and experiences that will take you a step further.
The festival has events for both families and a culturally curious adult audience. Experience on stage conversations, debates, lectures, readings, award ceremonies, exhibitions, seminars, shows, quizzes and other festivities.
