Join the reading circle

Art Paxton

Enjoy reading literature from all over the world? Want to meet new people who share that interest?

Then join the LitFestBergen reading circle. Participation is free. The only requirement is that you can read and speak English.

At the meetings this spring, we will discuss books of authors who attended LitFestBergen 2019.

16 May 2019, 19.00-20.30: The History of White People by Nell Irvin Painter

Kari Jegerstedt, literature-lover and associate professor at the University of Bergen, leads the circle.

The circle will meet in the Fosse-stova room at Litteraturhuset i Bergen.

Joining the circle will allow you to:

- meet new people who share your pleasure in literature

- become even better acquainted with the works of some of the authors coming to Bergen

- discuss literature with a specialist

- acquire unique political and cultural insights into far-away countries – through their literature.
