Kala ghoda Art Festival 2014


 “Life happened because I turned the pages”
-Alberto Manguel

They say literature feeds the soul's curiosity and inspires the mind to go out on new adventures. This year at The Kala Ghoda Arts Festival, come and spend time with novelists and poets, columnists and non-fiction writers, people who are helping shape the world of tomorrow. Join in our readings and poetry sessions. Meet the authors you've always wanted to meet. Enjoy the panel discussions and participate in workshops and interactive sessions.
Our thematic for the 2014 literature section is ‘WHY DON’T YOU WRITE ME’
We look forward to seeing you at David Sasoon Library, Arbour and Tarq.
Kitab Khana is where we will host several children's literature workshops.
