Literature and Freedom of Speech

Kapittel, Stavanger International Festival of Literature and Freedom of Speech, is an annual festival organised by Sølvberget Library and Cultural Centre.

Kapittel is one of the largest and most renown literary events in Scandinavia, with a strong focus on freedom of speech and social issues. We invite around 150 guests to a festival featuring stage conversations, lectures, readings, documentary films and a children’s program. The aim of Kapittel is to bring new literary voices to its audience, and to be a venue for a wide range of fiction and non-fiction from Norwegian and international writers.

Festival theme is Hope in 2023

Every year the festival has a theme. In 2023 the theme is Hope, inspired by the ongoing fight for freedom in Ukraine and Iran. The festival programme will be launched during spring and summer.
