For the second consecutive year, Hyderabad Literary Festival (HLF) is going online. The 2022 edition will be held from January 28th to 30th (at youtube.com/c/hlf-india). This development has come after the third wave disrupting normal life across the country.
Started in 2010, the festival is organized by “Hyderabad Literary Trust” in association with the Government of Telangana and with the support of several academic, literary, cultural organizations and publishing houses. This time the festival is happening in partnership with the British Council.
This year’s festival is dedicated to the late Ajay Gandhi, founder of Manthan and one of the former directors of HLF. Nobel laureate Abhijit Banerjee is also among the delegates attending the festival. The organizers made sure that there is everything for every age in the fest.
The festival includes Literary Sessions, Kaavya Dhaara, Stage Talks, Storytelling, Cultural Events, Workshops, Exhibitions, Moving Images Talkies, Youngistaan Nukkad, Nanha Nukkad, and Interlude.
