Jaipur Literature Festival, Sept 19-20, Boulder, CO

Jaipur Literature Festival

More information to come….

This Fall, the Jaipur Literature Festival travels to Boulder, Colorado, as a creative caravan of writers and thinkers, poets and balladeers. In true JLF fashion, the festival will kick off with a sublime morning music session and end with a riveting debate. Showcasing South Asia’s unique and multilingual literary heritage and juxtaposing oral and performing arts, books and ideas, dialogue and debate, Bollywood and politics, this magical tour is an intense two-day teaser of what has been declared “the greatest literary show on earth.” Rather than readings, the Festival largely consists of interviews and panels featuring 2-4 authors, moderated by leading journalists and writers, in conversation to explore timely themes of local and international interest as well as the ideas and themes in their books.   Beautiful Boulder is known for its 300 days of sunshine a year and a forward-thinking, nature-loving population of 100,000. Nestled in the foothills of The Flatirons, the city is renowned as a hub for start-ups and innovation. The Festival will be held at Boulder Public Library and Civic Lawns with a week of lead-up activities held at Boulder Public Library, the University of Colorado at Boulder, Naropa University, Denver Public Library, and other venues.
