What is it?

The Delhi Literature Festival is Delhi’s emphatic answer to Jaipur, to regain its title of being the most bibliophilic city in the country. The DLF began in 2013, and is organised annually by an eponymous trust. They aim to promote young and aspiring writers, authors, journalists, students to preserve and further develop our rich art, culture, heritage and literature.

Authors like William Dalrymple, Christopher Doyle, Avirook Sen, Madhu Trehan, and Madhulika Liddle make this event hard for book-lovers to miss!

Who is it for?

Whether you want a teaser before you head to the Jaipur Lit Fest, or are just excited for the very special fare that this edition of the DLF has to offer, this is a treat for bibliophiles of all ages.

Why should I go for it?

With a line-up that includes not just authors and publishers, but also ministers and diplomats, former commissioners of police, and even political bigwigs like Delhi’s CM Arvind Kejriwal, and Rahul Gandhi, we can expect some truly exciting talks.

Anything else

1There are many interesting sessions organised around themes like How to Get Published, Blogs vs Books, and burning topics like voyeurism, intolerance, etc, so be sure to check out their schedule in advance. We recommend the talk on Mythological & Historical Fiction in India on Sunday, 10 January at 6.15pm.
