Jaipur Literature Festival

When: January 2018
Jaipur Literature Festival - The ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival is one of the most prominent literary festivals of India and in the whole of Asia. It was inaugurated in January, 2006 and has visibly grown to be a multi-dimensional event which is held annually, with the Diggi Palace Hotel in Jaipur playing host every year. The stately Palace premises serve as a fitting setting for the series of events that unfold during the 5-day programme.
In its very essence, the Jaipur Literary Festival upholds the freedom of expression in writing and embraces diverging opinions and viewpoints. Thus, part of its popularity is also attributed to the fact that all genres of writing in Indian and International writing get full support as well as a level playing field in this literary festival. Above all, it gives a much-needed space for people to engage in debate and dialogue and reflects the temper of contemporary times.
