Kerala Literature Festival is set to return in January 2023

The past few years have had their fair share of disappointments, but things are looking up for 2023. Chicago’s Lollapalooza makes its India debut in late January in Mumbai. But if music and concerts aren’t your thing, and you’d rather spend your time with books and literature, head to the beaches of Kozhikode early next year. The Kerala Literature Festival is back and will be held from January 12 to 15 on the shores of the Arabian Sea.

The KLF last took place in 2020. The 6th edition of the lit festival was originally scheduled for January 2022, but pandemic-related restrictions have caused delays. The festival is now set to come back strong next year. KLF is the second largest festival of its kind in Asia, with a total attendance of over 3 lakhs. Previous editions featured speakers like Arundhati Roy, Yuval Noah Harari—from Sapiens fame—Shashi Tharoor and more.

This edition will see more than 400 speakers, including Jeffrey Archer, Nobel laureates Abhijit Banerjee and Ada Yonath, Piyush Pande, Francesc Miralles, Wendy Doniger, Ramachandra Guha, Palanivel Thiagarajan, Sanjeev Sanyal, Anand Neelakantan, Shashi Tharoor, Manu S Pillai , Prakash Raj, Shobhaa De and Geethanjali Shree, who won the International Booker Prize for his novel sand tomb this year, the first Indian-language novel translated into English to win the prize. Discussions will explore literature through the lens of everything from science, technology, environment and health to art, film, politics, music, literature, travel and gender.
