For the first time ever, JLF comes to Belfast from 21-23 June 2019 at select iconic venues across the city to celebrate literature and the rich diversity in thought that it inspires.
Curated by Teamwork Arts, the producers of the ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival, JLF Belfast embodies the magnificent spirit of Jaipur’s annual literary carnival bringing its inclusive and infectious camaraderie to the vibrant capital of Northern Ireland with a heady mix of writers, thinkers, poets, balladeers and raconteurs.
The Festival will reinforce South Asia’s unique literary heritage and JLF's international programme while infusing it with flavours true to the proud literary legacy of Ireland, blessed by the collective greatness of littérateurs like Anne Enright, Samuel Beckett, Seamus Heaney, James Joyce, Jennifer Johnston, John McGahern, Edna O'Brien and W.B. Yeats, to name just a few.Know More
