About ZEE JLF @ The British Library

ZEE JLF at The British Library returns to London for its fifth consecutive year from 8-10 June, 2018.

The Festival that’s been described as the  ‘greatest literary show on Earth’ is back once again with a sumptuous showcase of South Asia’s literary and oral heritage, books, ideas, dialogue and debate

Last year, the British Library was infused with excitement and repartee for two days and had resounded with sessions on PG Wodehouse, the Beatles in India, travel, migrations, fiction-writing, the Partition, and poetry. Speakers ranged from Shashi Tharoor, Karan Johar, Tahmima Anam, Arundhathi Subramanian, Philip Norman, Roy Moxham and others.

The iconic ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival takes place every January in the Pink city of Jaipur as writers, publishers, literature-lovers, friends, patrons, intellectuals, influencers, students and the press converge at the Diggi Palace for five days of a stunning celebration of literature, oral and performing arts, books and ideas, debate and dialogue.

With its vibrant and indomitable universal spirit, ZEE JLF at The British Library is on its way again and we can’t wait for its magic to unfold.
