Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Series Jaipur Literature Festival 2024

Described as the ‘greatest literary show on Earth’, the Jaipur Literature Festival is a sumptuous feast of ideas. The past 17 years have seen it transform into a global literary phenomenon, having hosted nearly 2000 speakers and welcoming over a million book lovers from across India and the globe.

As the years pass and the Festival grows, our core values remain unchanged: to serve as a democratic platform offering access to all. Every year, the Festival brings together a diverse mix of the world’s greatest writers, thinkers, humanitarians, politicians, business leaders, sports people and entertainers on one stage to champion the freedom to express and engage in thoughtful debate and dialogue. Writers and Festival Directors Namita Gokhale and William Dalrymple, alongside Festival producer Teamwork Arts, invite speakers to take part in the five-day programme set in the historic and dynamic state capital Jaipur.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Series Jaipur Literature 2024 hosted award-winning writers, speakers, and thinkers from across the globe. 

The spectacular edition  was held at Jaipur’s Hotel Clarks Amer. A splendid success, it was a true literary marathon and encompassed an impressive line-up of insightful sessions, music, book signings, and the simultaneously held Jaipur BookMark and Jaipur Music Stage.

Seeing school students, in uniform, on a Saturday, peppering esteemed journalists and politicians with erudite and wide-ranging questions was brilliant.

Literature festivals are really good because it is the only place where as a writer, you get treated like a rockstar
Sohaila Abdulali
This is an audience which likes to listen to what we have to share as authors, it likes to engage with us not only simply during the session but also afterwards when the session is over!

Books and music are two of my favourite pleasures in life. A festival that brings two of these ultimate forms of human expression together is just wonderful!

I think that the Jaipur Literature Festival has become a literary milestone in India. I think it will be very difficult to talk about our culture, particularly our book culture, without referring to the Jaipur Literature Festival
