Hagesalongen (The Garden Lounge)
Contemporary literary debate, books and other highlights in Norwegian literature will be discussed at the live podcast Hagesalongen (the garden lounge). The lounge will move to the festival café at Zinken Hopp, for a special edition of criticism and rage. Is the enraged critic actually a myth? What has been the most incendiary literary debates throughout history? And which of the contemporary authors are most likely to jump down the throat of the book reviewer? Hagesalongen’s regular programme hosts are critic and professor Erik Bjerck Hagen, and critic and PhD candidate Erlend Liisberg. Together with various guests from the festival programme, they will approach the festival’s theme in a familiar, informal and irreverent way.
