How you can meet India's greatest writers!

More

The finest of the non-fiction authors will get together at the India Non Fiction Festival from June 21 to 23 in Mumbai.

It is perhaps safe to say that never before has there been so much of non-fiction being read as now. As the number of non-fiction racks in bookstores are steadily on the rise and more Indians are being introduced to newer genres of books, the India Non Fiction Festival brings together some of the best-known writers under one roof.

A first of sorts, the India Non Fiction Festival will see luminaries such as Sudha Menon, Gregory Roberts, Ravi Venkatesan, Govindraj Ethiraj and R Raj Rao among many others in various sessions across three days.

The event is being brought in association with Knowledge@Wharton, The American Center & Library, The British council, Crossword BookStores, IndiaSpend, Harper Collins, Sage, Jaico, Random House, Hachette, Penguin, Westland and Rediff.com.

Where: Nehru Centre, Worli, Mumbai

When: June 21-June 23 from 11am onwards
