About JLF London
Teamwork Arts, producer of the Jaipur Literature Festival, presents JLF at the British Library, which returns to London for its sixth consecutive year from 5-7 June, 2020 to celebrate books, creativity, dialogue, diversity and varied intellectual discourse.
The five-day Jaipur Literature Festival, held annually in the Pink City of Jaipur, is a riot of colour, energy, ideas and music against a backdrop of readings, dynamic discussions and debates.
This June, the spirit of the Festival with its pervasive sense of inclusiveness and infectious camaraderie, will once again be at the heart of London as a caravan of writers and thinkers, poets, balladeers and raconteurs bring alive South Asia’s unique multilingual literary heritage at the British Library.
Last year, the British Library was infused with excitement and repartee for two days and had resounded with sessions on the Raj, the poetry of Jan Nisar and Kaifi, travel, migrations, fiction-writing, museums and conservation and poetry. Speakers ranged from Shashi Tharoor, Shabana Azmi, Javed Akhtar, Katherine Boo, Meena Kandasamy, Mike Brearley, Kwai Kwarteng, Tishani Doshi, David Howell and others.
