The sixth edition of the Bangalore Literature festival, to be held in Banglore on October 28-29, will see the participation of 130 renowned authors, speakers and artistes, the organisers said on Monday.

 

"This year's festival will have the theme 'Speak Up, Speak Out' and will feature authors, speakers like Ramachandra Guha, Perumal Murugan, Rahul Dravid, Girish Karnad, Twinkle Khanna, Sonal Mansingh among others," an official statement from the organisers said.

 

Some of the discussions to take place include topics like 'Jingoism vs patriotism', 'How India's T-20 World Cup changed Indian and world cricket', and 'Chasing Bin Laden'.

 

"Every year the festival returns in a new way. This time too we promise you the previously unsaid -- honest, direct conversations coming your way," said Festival Director and author Shinie Antony in the statement.

 

International authors this year include Australian cricket writer Gideon Haigh, acclaimed South African writer Imraan Coovadia, Sri Lankan humourist Chhimi Tenduf-La and British journalist Adrian Levy.
