About JLF Toronto

For the first time ever, Teamwork Arts, producer of the Jaipur Literature Festival, brings to Canada a celebration of literature and the power of dialogue between September 27 and 29, 2019. Set to take place at Toronto’s Distillery Historic District — one of Canada’s premier arts, culture and entertainment destinations with charming cobbled streets, artists’ studios, cafes, galleries, and the dynamic Young Centre for the Performing Arts — JLF Toronto recreates the magnificent spirit of Jaipur’s annual literary carnival bringing its inclusive and infectious camaraderie to the vibrant capital of Ontario with a heady mix of writers, thinkers, poets, balladeers, and raconteurs.
The Festival, in keeping with JLF’s international programming vision, will reinforce South Asia’s unique literary heritage while infusing it with flavors true to the proud literary legacy of Canada. With internationally acclaimed authors and thinkers taking part in a range of stimulating panels and debates, the program resonates with ideas and issues critical to our present, past, and future.
