KARACHI - The 4th three-day Karachi Literature Festival, along with children’s literature festival, continued in Karachi on the second day.
It is reported that about 35 delegates from eleven countries including Italy’ Russia’ Germany’ France’ UK’ USA’ Canada’ Nepal and India are attending the festival’ besides those from the host Pakistan. Despite all these events the festival will have more sessions and book launches, along with theatrical presentations and literary programmes.
The citizens will be able to see world- renowned literatures, while the literary discussions, workshops etc will also highlight the festival, organised by Oxford University Press.
Like the previous three editions of the festival, this year too intellectually stimulating sessions with a galaxy of internationally renowned writers, authors and performing artistes are in store.
Ever since its inception in 2010, the Karachi Literature Festival has assumed a significant position in the cultural space of the country.
If on the one hand it has successfully managed to dispel the notion that Pakistan in general and Karachi in particular cannot host international events, on the other it has provided book loving Pakistanis to see, hear, meet and interact with writers of high merit.
