The Jaipur Literature Festival 2019 will take place on 24 - 28 January next year. The annual event hosted at the Diggi Palace in Rajasthan a state with one of the richest cultural heritages in India.

Lectures, talk programs and music featuring well known authors, poets, musicians, lyricists, film directors, actors, social thinkers share their innermost experiences in intimate settings.  Audiences get an opportunity to be involved in Q&A sessions with famous personalities.

Billed as the "greatest literary show on earth", this year's literature festival saw a glittering array of heavyweights from literary, musical and cultural spheres. Poetry was a dominant theme this year, and topically relevent were the sessions on women-centric writing.  The festival spilled over the four walls of the Diggi Palace and special events were held at Amber Fort and Hawa Mahal to celebrate the rich cultural and architectural heritage of the "Pink" City.

 

The festival which began in January 2006 has now evolved into a multi cultural and multi nation event with more options for the visitors to enjoy and participate in the topic of their choice. Speakers in the past have included : V.S Naipaul, Paul Theroux, Vikram Seth, Pico Iyer, Michael Ondaatje, Salman Rushdie, HariKunzru, Tariq Ali, Shashi Tharoor, Shobha De, Ruskin Bond, Orhan Pamuk, Kiran Desai, Eimer McBride, William Dalrymple to name some of luminiries who has participated in the festival.

 

And what some individuals had to say about the experience at the festival

"The greatest literary show on Earth" - Tina Brown, Journalist & Author.

"The most fabulous literary love-fest on the planet" - Simon Schama, Author & Historian.
