By the Book: George Town Literary Festival 2020

In this decidedly different year of 2020, we’ve had to reconfigure and reimagine how to do many of the things we’re used to - and the George Town Literary Festival (GTLF) is no exception. With physical proximity and travel being such a challenge, the festival has gone virtual this year with a series of podcasts and online events - and for a topsy-turvy year where most of life seems to revolve around screens, the festival is aptly themed “Through the Looking Glass”. We speak with GTLF co-directors Pauline Fan and Sharaad Kuttan, about the process of presenting a vastly different version of the festival this year. And to wrap things up, in Footnotes, we look at how the Singapore Writers Festival 2020 too, has gone digital.
