Celebrate the Joy of Literature, Knowledge, and the Imagination. Celebrate our Common Humanity! JLF Colorado brings the world-renowned, international Jaipur Literature Festival to Boulder, Colorado. A festival of literature from all over the world, JLF at Boulder, Colorado is in its fourth year as the annual U.S. home to the world’s largest literature festival. Free and accessible to everyone, the festival invites us to join together in examining the human experience through the rich knowledge and imagination of some of the most distinguished authors from around the world, including Nobel Laureates, Man Booker, Pulitzer, National Book Award, and Grand Prix recipients. 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. A uniquely multicultural festival, JLF is a festival of ideas; individuals and panels of illustrious authors sit in conversation with one another discussing the ideas in their books, and inviting questions and comments from the audience. Intercultural conversations are featured, and in addition to literature from around the world, JLF Boulder presents a potent and diverse stream of American literature.
