Norway's Crown Princess Mette-Marit opens the Norwegian Festival of Literature.

The Norwegian Festival of Literature is the largest literature festival in the Nordic countries based on non capital values. Its main focus is Norwegian contemporary literature and the interaction between literature and society. In the past few years it has had an increasingly international profile with a particular focus on literature from the Nordic countries.

The festival takes place every year in Lillehammer at the end of May/start of June.

The festival contains everything from large scale events to intimate small events: meetings with authors and authorships, readings, interviews, debates, lectures, concerts, art exhibitions, seminars, theatre, film and quiz.
This is a festival for an extensive reading audience: kindergarten- and school children, families, book club members, teachers, students, journalists and politicians.

The festival is also Norway’s largest meeting point for authors, translators, literary critics, publishers and librarians.
