The 9th annual Bookworm Literary Festival kicks off on Friday, March 13, and this year’s lineup looks to be one of the most interesting ever. The guests on this week’s Creamcast certainly think so — they’re festival coordinators, after all — but don’t let their bias stop you from checking it out yourself.

Chang-rae Lee, Yasmina Khadra, Tahar Ben Jelloun, Willis Barnstone, Victoria Hislop, Michael Meyer… art, environment, journalism, comedy, trivia… and so much more. Where do we start?

May we suggest… with this episode? Host Anthony Tao and his Bookworm Literary Festival colleagues Thomas Price, Mojdeh Shiek, and Julia Lobyntseva offer a run-down of the program, point out events that shouldn’t be overlooked, and muse on what makes the Bookworm Literary Festival — one of the world’s few international literary festivals run mostly out of a bookshop — so special.

The Creamcast would like to thank Popup Chinese for letting us use their studio and Great Leap Brewing for their generous support.
