USIBC Supports JLF in Boulder, Colorado
A festival of literature from all over the world, the Jaipur Literary Festival (JLF) at Boulder promises to be an event unlike any other. Free and accessible to everyone, rich with words and ideas, the Festival invites us to join together in examining the human experience through the reflections and imaginations of distinguished contemporary authors from around the world. In an uplifting celebration of the mind and heart, authors from the Americas, Asia, Africa, and Europe engage in provocative conversations about life and society, economics and the arts, equity, freedom, and the care of our planet. In our critical times, the penetrating, intercultural dialogue exchanged at this festival of ideas speaks deeply to individuals and gives rise to the joy of community.
Join us in Boulder to taste the beauty of our common humanity reflected in the beauty of Colorado! Beautiful Boulder is known for its 300 days of sunshine a year and its highly educated, professional population of more than 100,000; for its deep interest and leadership in social, technical, and environmental innovation; for yoga and mindfulness practices, cycling and fitness, and natural health and healing. The Festival will be held the Boulder Library and Civic Lawns with a week of lead-up activities held at the Boulder Library, the University of Colorado at Boulder, Naropa University, the Denver Public Library and other venues. This year the Festival features Her Majesty the Royal Queen Mother Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuck, 2016 Pulitzer Prize winner Viet Thanh Nguyen and best selling authors Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, G.Willow Wilson, and Stephen Graham Jones.
