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. JLF Toronto will continue to build on the success of the past two years with another virtual edition this Fall.

On October 2 & 3, 2021, JLF Toronto will once again showcase Canadian talent and embrace international voices through diversity and inclusivity. This year, the Festival will connect Canada’s distinct regions from coast to coast to coast through literature, dialogue and debate, curating each Session with a thematic connection to its geographical locale. We aim to showcase South Asia’s unique literary heritage and Canada’s diverse literary legacy, while also celebrating the richness of its landscape, people and cultures.  Virtual doors will open wide to authors, poets and thinkers from across Canada and the globe to share with us their ideas, insights and words. JLF Toronto 2021 will be a celebration of all the wonder and magic the written and spoken word can provide.
