House of Literature (Litteraturhuset)

Overview

Norway's first and Europe's largest house of its kind is dedicated to literature in the widest sense of the word.

On the ground floor you find Kafé Oslo, a well-equipped book shop and the main stage room, Wergeland. On the higher floors, there are five other stages and rooms for conversation, debate and presentation. Children and youth also have a floor of their own.

The loft has a separate floor where writers can work and meet, and The House of Literature also has a writer's apartment for writers and intellectuals visiting from abroad. The house is meant to be a creative meeting place for everyone who is interested in books and literature. The event programme should encourage debate and help important voices get heard. Work with children and youth, and with minorities, are important tasks for the house.

Litteraturhuset is run by an independant and non-commercial foundation aiming to generate interest for literature and reading.
