Rumour Books India in collaboration with Satluj Public School, Panchkula, is all set to host the two-day Panchkula Literature Festival (PLF)
, rechristened as Panchkula Art and Literary Festival (PALF)
, on February 6 and 7
. It proceedings will be held at Hotel Holiday Inn
in Sector 3, Panchkula
. Reekrit Serai, founding director of PALF and MD of Rumour Books India, shares,“This year an added attraction will be the Panchkula Biz Lit Fest, comprising panel discussions with prominent businessmen of the region and from different parts of the country. Along with this, we’re introducing the Panchkula Art Fest to create an all-encompassing art, literary and business festival. As many as 40 speakers are participating this year.”
Aptly titled ‘Get Booked!’, PALF marks the leap of faith that the region has taken in the world of art, literature and business.
A galaxy of authors and artists are set to visit the two-day festival, including India’s ace photographer Raghu Rai, Avirook Sen, author of the book Aarushi, Anu Hasan, a noted Tamil actor and niece of versatile actor Kamal Hasan, and Jerry Almeida, who has signed a Rs 12-crore book deal for a series of ten Karma Kurry books with Jaico publishers, which is one of the biggest deals ever signed in the publishing history of our country. Prominent author Hindol Sengupta will also be a part of the festival, among many others.
