A journey worth travelling for, a story worth listening to, a literary and cultural compote worth relishing, Kerala Literature Festival is all that and much more. Set against the backdrop of the serene beach of Kozhikode, the haven of food, football music and literature, Kerala Literature Festival has become synonymous with literature enthusiasts all over the country making it the fastest growing literature festival in terms of footfall and the plethora of voices of the authors and thinkers from around the world.
In its fifth edition this time, KLF has without doubt evolved over the years. Converging literature, culture and politics into the ever-changing tonalities of the contemporary world, the fest provides a space to question the realities that we are obliged to live with. Spread over four days, with brimming with sessions throughout the day, KLF 2020 has plenty in store to offer. Apart from the panel discussions on a variety of topics, this year will witness sessions under the titles Straight Talks, KLF Mic, Debates and Book Talks.
While Straight Talks focuses on a single topic and a single speaker, KLF mic is a fifteen minute long session with four different speakers on the stage talking about a topic of their choice. Debates without doubt will set the stage for a battle with perspectives and words. Book Talks would open a window to the latest arrivals in the literary from the authors themselves with anecdotes, tracing their journey and the stories they penned.
With 200+ sessions, KLF has something to offer everyone, every possible crowd on the beach, focusing on literature through every way possible.
