“Can we say with confidence that the pandemic is now behind us? We don’t know that for sure. What we do know for sure though, is that all of us learnt to deal with it. At Tata Literature Live! we decided we would continue with our online festival. Which brought us a whopping 7 million views!
We also learnt that people are eager to catch up with on-ground activities again. And so, bringing the best of both worlds together, we have a wonderful blend of an online and on-ground festival at Tata Literature Live! The Mumbai Litfest.
So block your dates, clear your schedules and stay with us 9th to 13th November.”
