5 Reasons To Attend JLF At Boulder
The Jaipur Literature Festival has a well-earned reputation as the world’s largest free literary festival. From just 100 visitors in 2006, we grew to 250,000 footfalls over the five-day festival this January. When one thinks of the Jaipur Literature Festival, what comes to mind is colour, stimulation, energy and passion. Whether you are a fan of regional music, an admirer of political journalism, aficionado of delectable fiction or just plain curious, you fall under the welcoming umbrella of the Jaipur Literature Festival.
One thing we pride ourselves on is access. Free and democratic access to our speakers, sessions and ideas and it was only a matter of time before we took flight and landed overseas, to give those who cannot make it to Jaipur a taste of what is called the ‘greatest literary show on earth’.
After our second stint at the Southbank Centre in London in May, 2015, our next stop is…Boulder, Colorado, USA! Beautiful Boulder is known for its 300 days of sunshine per year and its highly educated, professional population of more than 100,000; for its deep interest and leadership in social, technical and environmental innovation and for yoga & mindfulness practices, cycling & fitness and natural health & healing.
