Legendary photographer Sir Donald McCullin participated in a literary salon titled ‘Landscapes at Sunset, which was hosted by Le Grand Hotel in Galle. It coincided with the 10th anniversary of the Fairway Galle Literature Festival (FGLF) this year. Le Grand was named one of the official accommodation partners for the FGLF and was the ideal site to hold the literary salon with panoramic and magnificent views of the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Galle Fort just behind the scene. As part of the group’s ongoing arrangement with the annual literary fete, the luxurious Le Grand -the newest of Asia Leisure’s six properties across the island- hosted the stays of five esteemed visiting authors, and served as a venue for three other FGLF events in addition to ‘Landscapes at Sunset.’
