reineord - Lofoten International Festival of Literature

The village of Reine i Lofoten is best known for its unique and magnificent scenery, but in the summer of 2009 this time-honoured fishing village in the fabled Lofoten Islands became the venue for Lofoten's first international festival of literature. For four days on end the tiny hamlet was populated by cultural personalities from the whole of Scandinavia. Some of the region's most famous contemporary writers had made their way to what was once the village school, but has now been converted into Reine Centre of Arts and Culture, to take part in the event. The festival was a a tremendous success and there is no doubt that it will be an annual event that many will look forward to - both participants and audience alike.

The following authors will be taking part in 2010:
Laila Stien - Ketil Bjørnstad – Ingar Sletten Kolloen – Per Petterson – Herbjørg Wassmo – Anne Karin Elstad – Klaus Hagerup and Bibbi Børresen – Roy Jacobsen – Thorvald Steen – Kjell Arild Pollestad – Mustafa Can – Mikael Wiehe – Frank A. Jenssen – Bjarte Hjelmeland
