People, are you all ready to meet some of the greatest writers and speakers who will be present in India under one roof? In just 4 days we will be witnessing the world’s largest literary festival in Jaipur, the Zee Jaipur Literature Festival, billed as the ‘largest free literary festival on Earth’, this fest is a hit among the book festivals.
Last year it hosted 1300 speakers and had around 1.2 million book lovers visit this fest from around the world.Once again, the 2017 edition of the Festival will bring together a dizzying array of voices and cerebral conversations. As they rightly say it is celebrating writers and thinkers from across the globe, this year, Jaipur is all geared up to welcome writers and speakers, historians, humanitarians, politicians, business leaders, entertainers, sports person. Some of the popular name who will be present here includes a name like A.N. Wilson, Aarathi Prasad, Alexandra Büchler, Arefa Tehsin, Ashok Desai, Linda Colley and much more.
The best part about his festival is that the entry to meet these great minds is free which again makes it a great platform to get acquainted with some great works which otherwise is vested in the hands of only privileged class.
There can be no better way to start off the year by getting bathed in the words of wisdom by these literary stalwarts and joining them for five days of debate, discussion & dialogue.
What more, you can even be a part of this festival as a volunteer. With a brilliant line up of international and national authors and speakers, it encompasses a range of readings, talks, debates, performances, children’s workshops and interactive activities, which require detailed supervision and organisation so they really require an amazing army of volunteers who will be the interface between them, the audience and the authors!
The fest begins on 20th Jan 2017 in Jaipur. If you are a real fan of writing and literature, this fest is going to make your dream come true.
Save the dates!!!
