The Lillehammer Literature Festival features several hundred official events. And an unofficial one. But with strong tradition: the minibar book bathroom in room 316.
In 2010, journalist, author, poet, salmon fisherman, and enthusiast Tom Stallsberg was first invited to a small, casual book bath in Brisith Hotel Room 316. The last time was 2018. The last time is so far. For this week, Stalsberg is back. After a few years of pandemic and open hunting, the retired freelancer is back at his best. With the good and growing support of the dear staff of his former newspaper Dagbladet, May Thingelstad and Sigrid Hvidsten.
