Date: 20 - 23 September 2012
Nepal’s first international literature festival, the Ncell Nepal Literature Festival aims to celebrate the written word. The festival brings together readers, writers and critics, political commentators and academics in one forum to hold forth on important current issues–both literary and non-literary. Barely into its second year, the Festival is already considered as an epochal event in Nepali literary history.
“The Ncell Nepal Literature Festival is a paathshala. All of us are here to learn and exchange ideas.” That’s what acclaimed writer Khagendra Sangraula had said during the inaugural edition of the Ncell Nepal Literature Festival in 2011. And what a wonderful paathshala it had been with over 70 writers engaging the crowds with delightful talks for four days.
This September, Kathmandu will host another paathshala, which promises to be bigger and better. Over 90 writers from Nepal and abroad will attend it for readings, panel discussions and book launches and signings.
Get set to celebrate literature at its best. Get set for the Ncell Nepal Literature Festival, a festival designed to feed knowledge, arouse intellectual curiosity and sharpen rhetorical skills.
With its various innovative and interactive sessions, this is one event you don’t want to miss. All you have to do is, come. Come, unleash the power of words in your life. The entry is free.
