The event successfully engaged literary luminaries with an eager audience.

The last day of the festival started with attendees participating in “Literary Jalan-Jalan”, a morning walk with some of the festival’s finest storytellers along the hidden paths of Penestanan, through lush rice fields and a permaculture garden, all the while listening to tales from near and far over a delicious brunch.

The morning program also featured a “Herb Walk” workshop that introduced participants to the wealth of natural remedies made from the wild herbs and plants that grow around Ubud.
