VoW at the City of Nizams
Post a two-day scintillating event in Kolkata, the Valley of Word Lit fest in its pan-India edition moves south, to the City of Nizams, Hyderabad.
An interesting line-up of sessions curated around eleven shortlisted authors and books under the Writing for Young Adults and Translations (books from Indian languages into English) will be the highlight of the event scheduled for the 13th and 14th of November, 2021.
Dr. Marri Channa Reddy Human Resource Development Institute of Telangana, a premier training institute for civil servants and government officials of Government of Telangana will be our venue partner and host the fourth edition of the pan-India event.
While some of our authors, under both the verticals, will be physically present at the venue, some of them will connect virtually given Covid restrictions. The sessions will be interspersed with half a dozen book-launches as well.
In discussion with our shortlisted authors from across the globe will be eminent panelists from Hyderabad’s literary circuit coming together to make the inter-active sessions come alive.
There will be something for every age group, from Hyderabad Children’s Theatre Festival, 2021 hosted by Vaishali Bisht to celebrate Children’s Day on the 14th or be it a tailor-made cartoon exhibition at the venue entitled, ‘Obtuse Angle,’ by none other than Shri BP Acharya himself, along with a fusion musical evening by Jaywant Naidu on the 13th of November.
So what is so unique about the upcoming event, Mr. Ajay Misra, the Curator of the Valley of Word, Hyderabad session tells us, “Hyderabad has been the national hub for Agriculture seeds, Pharma & Information Technology, but with the arrival of VoW and along with Hyderabad Literary Festival, the city heralds to emerge as a National Literary Hub as well. We have eleven short-listed books being reviewed along with half a dozen book releases during the two-day event. Nothing could be more exciting for a bookworm like me.”
Telling us more about Translations vertical (books from Indian languages into English) Festival Director, Sanjeev Chopra adds, “The tag-line ‘Transcreate’ brings alive the art of translation which is no longer a literal translation but one which adds creativity and sets the mood to create something beautiful.”
