Ubud Writers and Readers Festival, Ubud

Ubud , Bali
view web site ›'s insider take:

Held annually during the first week of October, this lit-and-culture festival draws celebrity authors—such as Michael Ondaatje, Anita Desai, and Madhur Jaffrey—who give readings, speak about their past and future books, and join issue-oriented panels, usually with ample audience participation. Most events are held at Indus restaurant and venues within walking distance. Yet for many in the audience, it's not the famous authors that make the festival memorable but the chance to mingle with other intellectually curious folk from throughout the Pacific region and to meet talented artists in many genres. In addition to bookish events, the schedule in Ubud includes performances by dance and drama troupes from throughout Asia, cooking demonstrations, walking tours in the countryside around Ubud, and workshops for aspiring travel writers.
