Tata Literature Live!

Friday, October 24, 2014

Shirley Mistry tells you about the fifth edition of Tata Literature Live, which is going to take place at NCPA, Prithvi theatre and The Easel

Tata Literature Live! is back with its fifth edition. An annual gathering of book lovers, publishers, authors and critics, Tata Literature Live! is the event to head to get your fill of literature — from long form and fiction, to poetry. The festival is truly upping its game this year, by introducing another venue in the suburbs, saving you precious hours, as you won’t have to travel all the way to Nariman Point. “There have been several requests from suburban enthusiasts asking us to move closer to them, so we’re making a beginning this year by going to Prithvi Theatre. This will enable Mumbai’s only international literary festival to reach out to an even wider audience,” says festival director, Anil Dharker.

The festival has also introduced three new awards this year, including the Tata Literature Live! Poet Laureate Award, the Tata Literature Live! Book of the Year Award (fiction and non-fiction), and the Tata Literature Live! Business Book Award. “By adding the award for Poet Laureate, we are taking a major step in bringing poets writing in India’s many languages to the forefront. The Lifetime Achievement award will, as usual, go to one of our country’s legendary literary figures,” adds Anil. Apart from invigorating discussions, you can also look forward to special performances commemorating Shakespeare's 450th birth anniversary. A choir will sing his songs set to music, accompanied by a Canadian pianist. Also, Dylan Thomas’ birth centenary will be celebrated in the presence of the First Minister of Wales, the Right Honourable Carwyn Jones AM, and Welsh poets, Eurig Salisbury and Rhian Edwards.

We especially love the workshops on flash fiction and Haiku writing, as well as the book swap event, where readers can exchange their books for others of their choice, from a common pool of books.
