Mangalore gears up for first ever literary festival

Coastal city Mangalore is gearing up to host its first ever literary festival which is scheduled to take place on 3rd and 4th November. Being an educational hub and the ‘intellectual capital’ of South India, Mangalore is indeed the ideal place to host the literary festival of such magnitude to be held in the whole of South India.

The festival is being organised and planned by Mangaluru Literary Foundation and the running theme of the maiden edition is “Idea of Bharat” which aims to build a new narrative of nationalism, through debates and discussions. The 2-day fest, along with various other programmes, would also include felicitation with Lifetime Achievement Award to the Saraswati Samman awardee S L Bhyrappa for his contribution in literature.

It promises to be a riveting and engaging event, bringing together stalwarts in fields of literature, arts, culture and media along with a lot of renowned authors releasing their books. Artist Ravi Gunaga will also be holding a one-of-a-kind clay modelling workshop and one would also get to see the creator of the famous ‘angry hanuman’, Karan Acharya.
