Kolkata Literature Festival
Kolkata Literature Festival is a relatively young literature festival that takes places within the folds of the International Kolkata Book Fair, to celebrate the written word, and the different facets of it – publishing, story telling, theatre, documentaries to name a few.
It aims to create a platform, for people across the cross section of the society, to come on board, and discuss all forms of literature where every person who attends, gets a connect with the books and its makers.
The Kolkata Literature Festival made its debut at the 38th International Kolkata Book Fair in 2014 and since then, it has been offering to its visitors lively pulsating discussions over books, literary trend, debates and face to face interactions with their favourite authors and eminent guests like Amartya Sen, Sudha Murthy, Vishal Bharadwaj, Bedabrata Pain, Upamanyu Chatterjee, Jawher Sircar, Sarah Rundle, Bani Basu, , Shobhaa De, Nabaneeta Dev Sen, Zeenat Aman, Usha Uthup, Ashok Banker, Jayant Kripalani, Prakash Belawadi, Jeet Thayil, Tishani Doshi, Amit Chaudhuri, Indrajit Hazra, and Sandip Ray have been a part of this festival. At the end of the three-day festival, book fair fans kept asking for more.
