Jaipur Literary Festival

This is your opportunity to mix with Nobel laureates, local writers, Man Booker prize winners, and debut novelists; all in all a remarkable, witty, and brilliant collection of authors who come together for five days of readings, debates, and discussions in Rajasthan’s ‘Pink City’. For over ten years, a diverse mix of authors from South Asia and around the world has gathered every winter in Jaipur. In January 2020, we’ll join them to attend a choice of over 250 scheduled events.

First, spend two days seeing a different Delhi: be moved by the eternal flame burning at the Gandhi memorial, share a meal at the Sikh gurudwara, or temple, and feel the pulse of the city’s creative scene at the historic Hauz Khas market. Then, after four days of literary hobnobbing, retreat to an elegant family-owned estate filled with heirloom furniture to relax by the pool, enjoy rummaging in ramshackle shops, learn to cook an Indian meal, and meet village weavers. Wrap it up with two days in the dazzling blue of Jodhpur to explore the grand fort and the colourful chaos of the city’s bountiful bazaars.

Publishing legend Tina Brown has called the festival “the greatest literary show on earth.” We think you’ll agree!
