Writers at the 2011 Ubud Writers Festival

Renee Thorpe
The list author says: "Ever magical and dreamy, a feast for the senses, the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival has a great lineup this year!
Unfortunately, amazon.com doesn't feature the published works of these sought-after Indonesian writers: Lily Yulianti Farid, graphic artist Ayip Budiman, Julia Sumakusuma, Agustinus Wibowo, Alan Malingi, Sandi Firly, Andrea Hirata, and so many others there's no space for. Also worth looking for is artist Jumaadi."
