Aung San Suu Kyi

Irrawaddy Literature Festival

We’ve just returned from a weekend steeped in culture at the Irrawaddy Literature Festival.  Hintha was proud to be a joint sponsor alongside our parent company, Anthem Asia.

We had the privilege to attend talks from such luminaries as Daw Aung San Suu Kyi (patron of the Festival) & Dame Joan Bakewell,  and to meet and chat with some of the visiting authors including Pascal Thoo Kwe, Louis De Bernieres and Jung Chang.

The Lit Fest was originally due to take place at the Kuthodaw Pagoda in Mandalay but in a (very!) last minute switch was moved to the Mandalay Hill Resort Hotel.  Despite the last minute change — very much a case of ‘This Is Myanmar’ — it was a great event……. and we left with a reading list that should last us through to next year’s event!
