From its modest beginnings in 2006, the Jaipur Literature Festival has grown into the largest literary festival in Asia-Pacific. More than 100,000 people attend hundreds of sessions over five days. In 2014, the JLF spread its wings beyond the borders of India with an annual event in May at London’s Southbank Centre. In 2015, the festival headed to Boulder, Colorado where it hosts a similar event every September. For the 2017 edition, among the tremendous group of authors expected, there will be Richard Flanagan, Sir David Hare, Alice Walker, SL Bhyrappa, Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Mark Haddon, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, Eka Kurniawan, Alan Hollinghurst and No Violet Bulawayo. According to William Dalrymple, writer, historian and JLF co-director, “Each year at Jaipur we try to produce a programme more remarkable than the year before, but 2017’s Jaipur list is certainly the most astonishing we have ever fielded.”
