About the Festival

Literary Festivals, today, are generally perceived to be an important platform for the promotion of books and reading. The Brahmaputra Literary Festival not only proposes to focus on the languages, literatures, culture, society, politics, performance traditions, music, identity, media of the north-eastern region of the country, but also national and international elements packaged in the three day event. It brings together prominent personalities and celebrities, writers, thinkers, artists and other performers both from the northeast and across the country as well as internationally acknowledged litterateurs and other intellectuals from across disciplines. This get together will not only encourage new ideas and their dissemination but will also create an atmosphere of enthusiasm and offer a platform for intellectual exchanges. The basic components of the festival will include panel discussions on issues concerning books, literature and language, In-Conversation sessions with writers, reading sessions, book signing sessions as well as cultural programmes showcasing indigenous cultures.
