DLF shows that art, culture, and literature will always thrive in this country

The month of November is here, and with it comes the much-anticipated Dhaka Lit Fest.

Back in 2015, the Dhaka Lit Fest took over from its predecessor, the Hay Festival, and in the years that followed, it has established itself as a world class literary festival, drawing big names from the world of literature and other fields.

DLF, which begins today at the historic grounds of Bangla Academy in Dhaka, is the biggest international literary festival in the country, and is open and free for all, through online registration.

Guests at the festival can look forward to a treat for the mind, as 200 speakers from five continents hold sessions on all kinds of topics, from the role of women in literature, to journalism, to politics, to some of the most serious crises facing the world today.

The stellar line-up this year includes novelist Monica Ali, Pulitzer-winning journalist Jeffrey Gettleman, historian William Dalrymple, politician and writer Shashi Tharoor, and many others.

What DLF brings to the table is indeed the best that Bangladesh has to offer, and amidst so many of the hardships of our capital city, DLF shows that art, culture, and literature will always thrive in this country, no matter the obstacles.

Not only does DLF bring speakers from all over the world to us, it takes our brand to the world.

This newspaper is proud to be title sponsor for this event. We eagerly look forward to three days of exciting panels at the festival, and hope to see you there.
