About JLF Toronto

In 2019, Teamwork Arts, producer of the Jaipur Literature Festival, brought to Canada, a celebration of literature and the power of dialogue. In 2020 & 2021, we pivoted to a virtual festival showcasing South Asia’s unique literary heritage and Canada’s diverse literary legacy.

On November 19 & 20, 2022, JLF Toronto will once again showcase Canadian talent and embrace international voices through diversity and inclusivity. Virtual doors will open wide to authors, poets and thinkers from across Canada and beyond to share with us their ideas, insights and poetic expressions. JLF Toronto 2022 will be A Literary Love Letter to Canada and continue to engage and connect audiences of all ages through informative, meaningful, and intercultural conversations.
