Have you ever read a book and wondered, what if the end had happened differently? Why that cliffhanger of an ending? What inspired the author to write this book? How much of the book is real?
Don’t worry, Literathon is here.
This is where you, my dear reader, can meet authors. Where you can question, talk, discuss and engage with the biggest names in the Indian literary world. You can be a part of the launch of the next bestseller and get to know what went into the writing of that book. And if you are an aspiring writer, you can get tips from established names or even get them to look at your scripts. Get an autograph, click that photograph and enjoy evocative book reading sessions.
At Literathon, you can meet fellow book lovers and discuss and debate your views about that book that you loved or hated.
Do you have a manuscript lying in a drawer, but never had the confidence to show it to anyone? At Literathon, not only can you attend creative writing workshops, but you can also discuss ideas with the veterans in the field.
At Literathon you’ll be catapulted into the world of books in its true sense. There aren’t just book discussions and debates but also the most uniquely designed competitions like – Pic-a-caption. We give you captions from books and you just need to click a picture that exemplifies it.
Oh, I know by now you must be wondering if this is all talk. Just big promises. Well believe you me, it is not. So at our inaugural event we bring to you the best from the world of management and development.
