Jaipur Literature Festival, JLF is one of the largest literary festivals in the Asia-Pacific and the most prestigious celebration of national and international literature to be held in India. It encompasses a range of readings, talks, debates, performances, children’s workshops and interactive activities held in the beautiful heritage city of Jaipur.
Outreach in the City aims at widening the scope of the festival by taking some of the celebrated authors and illustrators to institutions across Jaipur and thereby enabling children to partake of the joy of books and reading. This is the second year of the Outreach programme. This year too we have an exciting line up of personalities from India and abroad and will have 25 reading sessions, workshops and interactive sessions in 25 educational institutions in and around Jaipur between 21st to 26th of January 2013.
The eminent personalities for this year’s Outreach include Christopher Lloyd, Reema Hooja, Damayanti Beshra, Anupa Lal, M A Farooqi, Madhuri Behari, Zac O’Yeah, Neelesh Mishra, Ashok Chakradhar, Anita Mani and Devyani Bhardwaj.
“Outreach in the City” is under DSC Jaipur Literature Festival and brought to you by Pratham Books and Teamwork Productions. Rajasthan Patrika have part-sponsored this year’s Outreach in the City programme.
We will also be participating in the main Jaipur Literature Festival. More details to follow soon.
