Fiona Shaw - Galle Literary Festival 2016

“Why is the festival great? It uses one of the most beautiful places on the planet to make a market place of thought and an oasis of feeling. I loved being there because the scale is human and the humans are kind and welcoming and the food wonderful and balmy evenings allow long conversations on any subject to trail into the night.”
