'Read My World', the international literature festival of Amsterdam, focuses on literature that explores the boundaries of journalism. The first edition took place on September 13, 14, and 15, 2013 in the Tolhuistuin in Amsterdam Noord and highlighted journalism, literature – and everything in between – from Egypt and Palestine. The festival challenges the participating authors to present stories that go beyond the cursory headlines with which the news is generally presented to us.
