The Hindu Lit for Life is an annual literary festival organized by The Hindu (newspaper) in Chennai. They invite authors and notable literary/popular personalities from all over the world and organize book/literature-related speeches, readings, discussion sessions, author signings, etc. This year, The Hindu Lit for Life 2015 event is being held at Sir Mutha Venkatasubba Rao Concert Hall at Harrington Road, Chetpet. In this post, I present some highlights from the Day 1 of this event.
There were a few more sessions that I was unable to attend – Feminine Form: Site of Violence about the feminist movement in India, and hurdles faced to bring equality; Author Chetan Bhagat in conversation with Karthik Kumar, etc. Sessions are being held in two pavilions – The main pavilion and The Hindu pavilion They are also conducting a few (writing/book-related) workshops during this event.
If you love books/literature, and you are in Chennai from Jan. 16 – 18, attending this event is a must. Entry is free for visitors but you may have to register in the lfl website. (Click on this link to get the schedule of events for all three days.)
