Summer is just around the corner! At the Literature House, it brings greats like Chris Kraus , Rita Indiana , Ariana Reines and Siri Hustvedt .

We make a party evening where Norway's new author team reads football-related and unrelated in the microphone. And we show the decisive match in Norway's group play in the women's World Cup.

Welcome to Hell with Erlend Loe June 18th . In the postcard high season, we go close to life as a postman together with Torgrim Mellum Stene, who reads and tells through Charles Bukowski's legendary Post Office .

Summer also brings a series of sneak peeks into books that are somewhere between the author's hand and the bookstore: the authors Jan Grue , Nina Lykke , Linn Strømsborg and Jens M. Johansson read aloud from even unpublished books. In addition, poetry snickering will be special with Kjersti Bjørkmo , Erlend Nødtvedt , Marte Huke and Steinar Opstad .

The municipal elections are just around the corner. We give way to slightly longer political reasoning when the party leaders give their talks in the weeks leading up to the election .

Robyn is read by Dagny , Ulrikke Falch , Eskil Pedersen and Charlotte Myrbråten as part of the Island Festival's Club Day. On the same day there will be a jazz concert with Riedel music and conversation about how he has made us all hum along to the Albert Åberg and Pippi Longstocking music.

The summer ends with the author's own holiday pictures: Ragnar Hovland , Kjersti Wøien Håland and Ingvild Lothe share memories of vacations they either have or could intend to go on.

The summer also brings changes in the opening hours of the restaurant Kafe Oslo and the bookstore Tanum Litteraturhuset:
