Rio De Janeiro Festival Brings Literature To Favelas

Posted at 7:56PM Monday 23 Apr 2012

Every July, the celebrities of the publishing world gather in a small town on the lush coast of Rio de Janeiro state.

They are drawn to Brazil by a literary festival that has already been attended by renowned authors including Martin Amis, Margaret Atwood and Paul Auster.

The warm reception and idyllic setting prompted British novelist Ian McEwan to refer to the Paraty International Literary Festival, or Flip, as it is known , as "like being in A Midsummer Night's Dream".
