Title: Karachi Literature Festival
Location: Karachi, Pakistan
Description: The Karachi Literature Festival (KLF) was launched in March 2010 and has been a resounding success right from the start. Inspired by the first two KLFs (2010 and 2011), the Children’s Literature Festival (CLF) was launched at the end of 2011. The momentum begun in Pakistan with the KLF led not only to the CLF but also to the Lahore and Islamabad Literature Festivals (LLF, ILF), both launched in 2013, and the Teachers’ Literature Festival (TLF) which launched in 2014. This momentum reflects the depth of our historical literary and cultural roots, and the great desire and energy in Pakistan — irrespective of the city in which the Festival is held — to seek knowledge, understanding, and creative growth.
