Hyderabad is set to see the start of its literary festival, with some big name authors expected in attendance.
Visitors on flights to Hyderabad on the hunt for a good book could be spoilt for choice if they pay a visit to the city’s Literary Festival.
Beginning in the city on January 16th, the event is now in its second year and had built on the success of last year by getting some successful writers to attend the three-day expo.
Amita Desai, executive director of Goethe-Zentrum Hyderabad, which is organising the festival, explained it is important for promoting literacy and getting the city on the map as a cultural destination.
Some of the international writers set to attend this year include Mark Tully, Meena Alexander and Rahul Pandita, with many others to offer talks on their works at the free event.
The city also hosts an annual festival which people taking flights to Hyderabad could enjoy, with the nine-day event crammed with everything from dance displays to cooking presentations.
