18th Paraty International Literary Festival announces national and international writers participating in the event


Flip – Paraty International Literary Festival – announced the list of writers and artists whose participation in its 18th edition was confirmed. For the first time in its history, the event will be online and take place from December 3rd through 6th, 2020. The roundtables will be broadcasted on an exclusive platform and on all channels and social media of Flip. 

The event will count on the participation of a series of writers with different origins and perspectives, such as Bernardine Evaristo, the British author who won the Booker Prize 2019, Colombian writer Pilar Quintana and Brazilian Itamar Vieira Junior, a finalist of the Jabuti Awards 2020 in the Literary Novel category.

Other major names of the event are Danez Smith (USA), Chigozie Obioma (Nigeria), Eileen Myles (USA), Regina Porter (USA), Jeferson Tenório (Brazil) and Jonathan Safran Foer (USA).

“This has been an atypical year, that’s why we chose this format of event. Flip Virtual will have its own style, observing the original sense and purpose of the festival, that is, being more than a mere event and establishing a long-lasting and vivid relationship with Paraty”, explains Mauro Munhoz, artistic director of Flip.

The program also includes a series of videos to get the audience closer to the city, bringing stories and characters that are typical of Paraty into the online edition of the event, celebrating the true meaning of Flip. Details of the program will be disclosed soon.
