Ever wondered what book-lovers like yourself are reading, and what writers are creating, in Afghanistan? Nigeria? Jamaica? Argentina? On February 12, 2021, take an intimate, fascinating virtual journey into the culture, authors, and ambience of 12 destinations around the globe. The perfect escape from “shelter in place,” Literature Live Around the World is an unprecedented collaboration of 12 literary festivals worldwide. You’ll visit each region for an hour, starting in snowy Norway and ending at sunset on Treasure Beach in Jamaica. Can’t catch the live visit to Australia? The entire program will replay on demand for 10 days. BABF is proud to represent the U.S. with a program (to include authors Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida) showcasing what makes our own Bay Area such a literary beacon.
Our Festival Director is available for interview. If you’d like more information, please contact Julia Drake.
