The 9th ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival, the world’s largest free literary festival, demonstrates its global importance hosting the world’s leading writers and thinkers. The festival runs from Thursday 21st – Monday 25th January 2016 in the stunning historic setting of The Diggi Palace Hotel in Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan. The 2016 Festival embraces and explores globally vital issues such as migration, privacy and navigating change, bringing together a range of expertise and perspectives on stage throughout the five days.

Of the 222 already announced, headline names set to appear at the festival this year include the legendary Margaret Atwood, novelist, literary critic and environmental activist; Ruskin Bond, beloved to generations of Indian readers; Steve McCurry one of the world's greatest living photographers; controversial Harvard historian Niall Ferguson and Britain’s national treasure Stephen Fry. American contribution includes Dexter Filkin, Armistead Maupin, Casey Schwartz and Dennis Nurkse.

Whilst at the Festival, located in the heart of India’s biggest state, enjoy a life-changing opportunity to experience the vast beauty of Rajasthan - ‘Land of Kings’: its varied cuisine, striking wildlife and, most importantly, incredibly rich heritage and culture, including beautiful folk music, various religious festivals and inspiring architecture. The Festival is a New Year’s treat for both body and mind!
