About JLF New York

In February 2024, the 17th edition of the Jaipur Literature Festival took place in the Pink City of Jaipur, Rajasthan. It was a magnificent success, affirming the power of words and ideas through a remarkable line-up of speakers and sessions. The Festival's indomitable and inspiring spirit reached our audiences, both digitally and in-person.

This year, the vibrant energy of the Jaipur Festival makes its return to New York. The 8th edition of the festival is taking place on September 10th & 11th, 2024.

JLF editions, across several countries that include the US, UK, Spain, the Maldives, and Australia and in the Middle-East, seamlessly merge the rich multilingual literary traditions of South Asia with the unique essence of the host regions.

Through 2021-2022, virtual versions of JLF kept the spirit of creative conversations alive during the Covid years. Writers, thinkers, poets, artists, and filmmakers engaged in captivating discussions.

In 2023, we successfully held another onground edition of JLF New York, following two successful virtual editions in collaboration with the Consulate General of India, New York, Asia Society, The National Arts Club, The Centre for Fiction, and Sundaram Tagore Gallery.

This year, we return to celebrate the cosmopolitanism and liveliness of New York City. We once again bring forth our signature camaraderie, a caravan of ideas, and the enchanting flow of conversations that make our festival truly incredible!
