Synopsis

Part 1): Read and Lift:  An international panel of Festival authors Andrew Lam (US), Evan Fallenberg (Israel), Marshall Moore and poet Nicholas Wong (both from Hong Kong), offers excerpts from their latest works in our prelude session. Expect to be entertained, engaged and thrilled by the written word read out loud.

Part 2): Speak Up: Given the recent heated discussion over gay marriage all around us, are the gay movement and gay writing moving in opposite directions or the same? Is it gay writer or writer who happens to be gay?  Do gay writers have a social responsibility beyond creating the artistic work itself? Our international panel speakers will examine these questions and more. Nigel Collett moderates.
