Hong Kong International Literary Festival 2011

The Hong Kong International Literary Festival celebrates creative writing in English and emphasises writing with an Asian connection. The Festival features both established and emerging authors and includes works in translation, literary fiction and non-fiction, poetry and scriptwriting. The Festival unites authors and readers and promotes the literary arts and a love of literature. Check out the full programme of events for this year's Festival. The Hong Kong International Literary Festival features overseas and local authors and offers a ten-day programme of literary events annually in March. The Festival has become an important and significant event on the international arts calendar, with programmes that include winners of the world's leading literary prizes: Man Booker, Nobel Prize in Literature, Pulitzer Prize, National Book Award, Costa Whitbread Boo, Award, Carnegie Medal, Kiriyama Prize, Prix Goncourt and the Commonwealth Writers Prize. The Festival's international status is clearly confirmed by both the quality of authors and range of countries represented. Each year, the programme offered promises to be as vibrant as Hong Kong is exciting, as dynamic as Hong Kong is cosmopolitan and as diverse as Hong Kong is multicultural.
