Each Other’s Stories
ZEE JLF at The British Library returns to London for its sixth consecutive year from 14 – 16 June 2019 to celebrate books, dialogue, creative diversity and varied intellectual discourse.
Produced by Teamwork Arts, the Jaipur Literature Festival in India is a global literary phenomenon, having hosted more than 2000 speakers and welcomed over a million book lovers from across the globe over the past decade. The annual Festival, in the Pink City of Jaipur is a riot of colour, energy, ideas, and music against a backdrop of readings, dynamic discussions and debates. This June, the spirit of the Festival comes to London as writers, thinkers, poets, balladeers and raconteurs bring alive South Asia’s unique multilingual literary heritage at the British Library.
This year’s London edition brings together over 90 speakers from a range of disciplines, genres and cultures, including Tristram Hunt, director of the V&A and former Labour MP, Nobel Laureate Venki Ramakrishnan, acclaimed travel writer Pico Iyer, award-winning author and journalist Christopher de Bellaigue and acclaimed Bollywood actor Manisha Koirala whose latest memoir recounts her battle with cancer.
