These are strange and unsettling times, learning, as we are to distance ourselves from each other physically & managing to live largely in isolation. But book-lovers are never alone. We’re never lonely, not when we have books, and certainly not when we have each other. The iconic Jaipur Literature Festival, held annually at the Pink City of Jaipur, Rajasthan, has always believed in the spirit of the community and the hope, strength and vitality literature gives.
Thus, this year, as the world redefines the new "normal", the producer of the Jaipur Literature Festival and the British Library, bring to you a virtual edition of JLF London , in which the magnificent piazza of the British Library is replaced by the boundless possibilities of the internet. Everything else remains the same - the magic of discourse, the caravan of ideas, the camaraderie of people and the seamless flow of knowledge.
The Festival will begin with a curtain raiser on 6th & 7th June. This will be followed by a virtual edition of the Festival from 11th to 13th September 2020.
