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 and 2021, we pivoted to a virtual festival showcasing South Asia’s unique literary heritage Canada’s diverse literary legacy.

JLF Toronto will once again showcase Canadian talent and embrace international voices through diversity and inclusivity. Virtual doors will open wide to we welcomed authors, poets and thinkers from across Canada and the globe to share with us their ideas, insights and words. JLF Toronto 2021 will continue to engage and connect audiences of all ages through informative, meaningful, and intercultural conversations.
