The fifth international Louisiana literature festival brings together top international authors in a series of lectures, performances, discussions and interviews in a tightly packed four-day literary marathon. 

Patti Smith and Yoko Ono gave some fascinating contributions last year, and this year the roll call is equally impressive, with Herta Müller, Joyce Carol Oates, Lydia Davis and Margaret Atwood.  Michael Ondaatje, David Mitchell, Teju Cole and Jacques Roubaud, Herbjørg Wassmo and Lena Andersson. 

Aug 21-24; Louisiana, Humlebæk; en.louisiana.dk
