Bjørnsonfestivalen

Bjørnsonfestivalen is an annual international literature festival held in Molde and Nesset every August since 1992, and named in honour of the local Nobel literature prize winner Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson.

Visiting authors (and tree planters at the grove) include Wole Soyinka, Yasar Kemal[?], Vigdis Finnbogadottir, Seamus Heaney, and Thor Heyerdahl, amongst others.
