More than 170 famous writers, performers, artists, musicians and visionaries are slated to appear at the 2013 Ubud Writers and Readers Festival (UWRF) to be held October 11-15, 2013.

Coming to the festival are U.K. bestselling author Sebastian Faulks (Birdsong, Devil May Care), Lionel Shriver (We Need to Talk about Kevin), Lonely Planet co-founder Tony Wheeler, Australian cartoonist Michael Luenig and Richard Flanagan.
Coming to the Ubud festival in 2013 are Man Booker long-listed authors Ruth Ozeki (A Tale for the Time Being) and Tash Aw (Five Star Billionaire) and India literary pop star Amish Tripathi. Other international guests include David Vann (Legend of a Suicide), two-time Miles Franklin winner Kim Scott (That Deadman Dance), American talent Nami Munn, and one of France’s most prolific writers, Alain Mabanckou.
A world-class line-up of Indonesia’s finest and most successful writers and thinkers — including preeminent poet and man-of-letters Goenawan Mohamad; award-winning writer Ayu Utami; bestselling author and singer, celebrated filmmaker Garin Nugroho; Laksmi Pamuntjak, Ahmad Fuadi and more than 45 others — ensures the 2013 Festival represents the best of Indonesian literature. 
Along with the 75 sessions comprising the main program spread across three main venues, another 40 venues across Ubud will host special events, literary and cultural workshops, book launches, art programs and film screenings.
Free children’s and youth programs, including a special workshop with bestselling children’s book writer Morris Gleitzman will engage visitors of all ages.

Over five days and nights, Ubud will come alive with live music and performances, food and art markets and parties that run late into the night. Expect fascinating cross-cultural conversations, high-profile international authors, and the opportunity to discover new and exciting local voices at this year’s Ubud Writers & Readers Festival.
