Kim will be speaking at the Ubud Writers Festival in Ubud, Indonesia from 24-28th October.

From humble beginnings in 2004, the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival has evolved into one of the world’s most celebrated literary and artistic events – an annual pilgrimage for lovers of literature and conversation.

Bringing together some of the world’s most powerful voices in a melting pot of artists, authors, thinkers and performers, the Festival is a platform for meaningful exchange and cross-cultural dialogue. A place where artists and audiences alike can discuss shared inspirations, ideas and concerns, the Festival transcends cultural and geographical borders to create a truly global community.

Across five days, the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival delivers an eclectic program of events – from fiery conversations to intimate literary lunches, gripping live performances to hands-on workshops.

The Ubud Writers & Readers Festival is the major annual project of the not-for-profit foundation, the Yayasan Mudra Swari Saraswati. It was first conceived of by Janet DeNeefe, Co-founder of the Foundation, as a healing project in response to the first Bali bombing.

This year’s shortlist features a selection of truly delightful books: beautifully illustrated picture fiction—children will want to turn the pages of these books over-and-over again; tales of young people who love nature and want to make a difference; and intriguing nonfiction books for exploring young minds.
