For the first time ever, JLF comes to Belfast from 21-23 June 2019 at iconic venues across the city to recreate the magic of the magnificent ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival
Join us for a celebration of literature and the rich diversity in thought that it inspires. On Saturday, June 22, acclaimed literary stars Marcus Du Sautoy, Pico Iyer, David Park and Patrick Gale, amongst others, will discuss topics like the Kohinoor diamond, national conflicts, changing borders, the evolution of identity, creativity and more, in over a dozen sessions at the Lyric Theatre. The day starts with a musical concert and will be followed by exciting and engrossing sessions starting every hour. So come, let’s celebrate each other’s stories!
