About JLF Seattle

In February 2024, the 17th edition of the Jaipur Literature Festival took place in the Pink City of Jaipur, Rajasthan. It was a magnificent success, affirming the power of words and ideas through a remarkable line-up of speakers and sessions. The Festival's indomitable and inspiring spirit reached our audiences, both digitally and in-person.

Experience the same exhilarating energy of the Jaipur Festival as it makes its grand debut in Seattle this year. The first edition of JLF Seattle will take place at Seattle Asian Art Museum and Town Hall from September 20-22, 2024.

JLF editions, across several countries that include the US, UK, Spain, the Maldives, and Australia and in the Middle-East, seamlessly merge the rich multilingual literary traditions of South Asia with the unique essence of the host regions.

Through 2021-2022, virtual versions of JLF kept the spirit of creative conversations alive during the Covid years. Writers, thinkers, poets, artists, and filmmakers engaged in captivating discussions.

In 2024, at JLF Seattle, we celebrate the beauty of the seaport city of Seattle, nestling amid water, mountains and parklands, with its seven hills, vibrant trade and technology, significant musical history and pervasive university culture. Our hallmark camaraderie, caravan of ideas, and the enchanting flow of conversations will make it a truly unparalleled literary festival.
