About the Event

The Jharkhand Literary Meet was launched in 2017 in the belief that a culturally rich yet under-represented region such as Jharkhand needed its very own festival celebrating literature and allied cultural pursuits, like dance, music, recitation, cinema, and theatrical performances. From the very first year, the Jharkhand Literary Meet has drawn premier authors and speakers from the region and across India, making it a true mirror of the region’s literary and cultural landscape.View More
