21st Leukerbad International Literary Festival from 1-3 July 2016
To kickoff the festival’s third decade, nearly 35 writers from 5 continents and 15 countries will gather in Upper Valais to present their heroes, heroines, and other characters on Leukerbad’s village square.
Literary walk on 30 June 2016
For a foretaste of the weekend, we invite you to join us again on the Thursday before the festival and stroll into the 21st Leukerbad International Literary Festival. The literary walk from Sunnbüel (Kandersteg) to the Gemmipass will be accompanied by authors and a guide. The transfer of your luggage to Leukerbad is included in the ticket.
Leukerbad International Literary Festival from 1 to 3 July, 2016
As always we have invited authors from 5 continents and 15 countries to present their writing at the Leukerbad Literary Festival on the first weekend in July.
The ‘Perspectives’ Series, launched last year, will once again offer an international and first-rate selection of readings and discussions: writers, linguists, and philosophers will look closely at forms of literary journalism – essays and reportage – exploring past and present contexts and connections.
Come and dive into Leukerbad’s wealth of literature and thermal waters!
We look forward to seeing you there!
