The International Writers Festival E-mail

The International Writers Festival literary event takes place every two years in Jerusalem. It is the preeminent writers’ event in Israel, hosting many popular and upcoming Israeli writers and international writers with works translated into Hebrew.

This year’s event, taking place from 8 to 11 May, will focus on the theme of literary protests and the influence that they might have on Israeli society and on everyday discourse. It will include discussions, workshops, writing marathons, musical performances, theatrical readings and master classes.

One highlight in the programme is a discussion about The Rosie Project, a novel by Australian author Graeme Simsion that sold over 3.5 million copies around the world. The book focuses on Asperger’s Syndrome and deals with the process of coping with the disease on a personal, family and social level. Simsion will discuss the book with journalist Lihi Lapid, and together they’ll try to understand how we can make the world a better place for people on the autism spectrum.
