Guinness World Records*

LSF25 will be a fun event for everyone, but we want to make it even more enjoyable and world breaking.

We are in the works to try and break five world records on that weekend.

Saturday, June 7, 2025 we hope to create the World Record for:

The most authors reading consecutively is 111, at the Irish Writers' Centre, Dublin, Ireland, on 15-16 June 2012. The 111 writers, including Nobel Prize Laureate Seamus Heaney and Booker Prize winner Roddy Doyle, read from their work in slots of 15 minutes each over 28 continuous hours before an aggregate audience of 1,280. The event was also streamed live over the internet without interruption.

On Sunday, June 8, 2025, we would like to break the world record for the following:

Most Indie Authors Gathered in One Place
