 Happy ending for the literary festival that just keeps growing - Books
Four years ago the number of events, limited by the venue, was 130, and all were free; this year, as the festival spread across and out of Sydney, 240 events took place.

At breakfast during the Keswick Festival, I heard two writers on the next table arguing about which of them was performing at the time of day reserved for the top of the bill.
The enthusiasm of the literary festival's ticket-buying public can easily be dismissed as capitulation to the modern cult of personality: a book is no more enjoyable to read because the author's signature is on the title page.

 TIMEasia Magazine: Best of Asia - Best Literary Event
This year's festival, which took place in March, was a 10-day literary blowout, hosting 60 authors from around the world, among them Nobel laureate Seamus Heaney.
The organizers have had to grow the festival on their own, since the event receives little in the way of funding from the Hong Kong government.
But having to pay its own way has helped to keep the festival accessible—attendance at seminars, champagne brunches and gatherings such as an intimate literary lunch with Booker Prize winner John Banville is not dependent on your writerly connections so much as your willingness to buy a ticket.
