Dreaming of far-off places? Founded by William Dalrymple and Namita Gokhale, Jaipur Literature Festival takes place from 5th-14th March 2022, with a hybrid version that makes the most of Jaipur’s magnificence as well as allowing global attendees to join in from home via virtual events. From Nobel Laureates to local language writers, Man Booker prize winners to debut novelists, the annual event brings together authors, thinkers, politicians, journalists and popular culture icons from India and from around the globe.

Events to look forward to include talks and author insights from Anuradha Roy, Colm Tóibín, Monica Ali and Rupert Everett. Learn about mythological retellings with Charlotte Higgins and dive into David Mitchell’s novel Utopia Avenue with the author. There will also be yoga sessions and music to send your spirits soaring!
