  • VENUE:Literary Walkway

The National Museum of Taiwan Literature is housed within a historic, turn-of-the-20th-century public building in central Tainan City. NMTL’s outdoor space along Zhongzheng and Nanmen Roads include the shaded Literary Walkway, where the excerpted writings of Taiwanese authors that grace its picturesque, brick lampposts help extend NMTL’s collections & exhibitions into the public square. The just-opened NMTL exhibition “Reading Women’s Voices: Taiwan’s Female Authors” spotlights the writings of 33 Taiwanese female writers through history and across a myriad of genres, spanning classical poetry through to the modern novel. In their own times, each author invested her creative energies to broaden the perspective of Taiwanese women and, in the process, contributed substantively to Taiwan’s richly diverse literary landscape. While at the NMTL, we warmly invite you to spend time walking the Literary Walkway, where you may also experience the allure of Taiwan’s talented female authors and their works.
