The weeklong festival, which ends on February 4th, includes debates, workshops, movie screenings, art exhibitions and musical shows. But the literary debate is king. “The objective of the literary festival is to reignite the pleasure of reading and writing and I am sure that many in Macau will be inspired by these visiting authors,” said the director of the Script Road, Ricardo Pinto.
The festival started in fact with a master class and workshop led by Hong Kong writer Xu Xi. The author also presented her latest novel, “Habit of a Foreign Sky,” which was shortlisted for the inaugural Man Asian Literary Prize.
