11. Literary festival hits double digits
When the Shanghai International Literary Festival (SILF) kicked off in 2003, the Bund was quiet: SWFC wouldn’t open for another five years, Bar Rouge for another year, and the pedestrian walkway was not yet under construction.
A decade later and the festival is China’s largest of its kind, drawing a huge roster of authors, many of whom have been shortlisted for or taken home a slew of literary prizes -- Man Booker, National Book Award, and the Los Angeles Times Fiction Prize.
For its 10th year, SILF is lining up the likes of Amy Tan, Siddhartha Deb, and Edward P. Jones for three weeks of enthralling readings and discussions.
The 2012 SILF will be held from February 29-March 18 at the Glamour Bar.
Glamour Bar, 6/F, Five on the Bund, 20 Guangdong Lu, near Zhongshan Dong Yi Lu 广东路20号, 外滩五号6楼, 近中山东一路, +86 21 6350 9988, 5 p.m.-midnight
