Literature Festival Begins in Bali

UBUD, Indonesia – The Ubud Writers and Readers Festival began on Wednesday on the Indonesian island of Bali, with over 150 authors and artists from 30 countries attending the event.

Among the Latin-American and European writers attending the festival are Colombian novelist Hector Abad Faciolince, Mexican poet Carmen Boullosa, Argentine writer Sergio Chejfec, Brazilian writers Veronica Stigger and Victor Heringer, and Portuguese poet Ana Luisa Amaral.

In addition, Spanish documentary photographer David Palazon will present his photobook, “Timor Runguranga,” which features his journey to Timor-Leste, the youngest nation of Asia.

The organizers will also hold a solidarity event to help 140,000 evacuees affected by the possible eruption of Mount Agung, which has been on high alert since Sept. 22.

“This has been an extremely difficult time for the Balinese, not just for evacuees but for local businesses who are playing an invaluable role in supporting affected communities,” Janet DeNeefe, founder and director of the festival, said in a statement.

A 12-kilometer radius around the crater of Mount Agung, located 35 kilometers from Ubud in eastern Bali, has been set up as an exclusion zone, which would not affect most tourist areas but could affect air traffic in the event of a volcanic eruption, according to local authorities.

The festival, which will conclude on Sunday, has been held since 2002 in remembrance of the Bali bombing that killed 202 people in October of the same year.
