'More Than Just Big Names...'
The Galle Literary Festival is Back !
It is more than just great authors, although we will have a great deal of those too.
This year we will also bring you Plays, Concerts, Art Installations, our renowned Gourmet Events, Childrens Festivals, Fashion Shows, Garden Tours, Architecture, Community Initiatives, Photographic Exhibitions and plenty more fringe events.
You can await the announcement of writers who will be at the Festival in October 2015 and the programme which is presently being formed, will be released at the end of November 2015.
We will also have 2 literary awards – the Fairway National Book Award for a published novel in Sinhala, Tamil and English & the DSC Prize Award Ceremony, which was held at the Jaipur Literature Festival for the last 5 years, moving to the Galle Literary Festival this year.
We are also pleased to introduce two mini festivals in Kandy and Jaffna, as a new addition to the festival. Done with similar themes just on a smaller scale and over two days each, they will open up our audience to the rest of the island. We are excited to introduce these two new cities rich in Sri Lankan history and tradition, and hope you will be too.
