Tata Literature Live!

Among the most-loved literary festivals in the country, Tata Literature Live!, or Lit Live! as it’s come to be known, assembles authors, poets, artists and thought leaders from different parts of the world at the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Mumbai. In addition to hosting a slate of engaging book launches, discussions and workshops, the festival, which was launched in 2010, confers as many as ten awards. The categories include Book of the Year for fiction and non-fiction, Publisher of the Year, Poet Laureate and a Lifetime Achievement award. 

Mahasweta Devi, Ruskin Bond, Mark Tully, Anita Desai, Girish Karnad, Shanta Gokhale, Adil Jussawalla, Kiran Nagarkar and K. Satchidanandan are among the past recipients of the awards. Germaine Greer, Jeffrey Archer, Shobhaa De, Alexander McCall Smith, Amy Tan, Vikram Seth, Shashi Tharoor and William Dalrymple are just some of the writers who have been part of the festival over the last 12 years. Since 2020, the sessions have been available to stream on the festival’s official website, YouTube channel and Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. Some of the speakers at the 2022 edition included author Ian Cardozo, journalists Faye D’Souza and Gayatri Rangachari Shah, author and politician Shashi Tharoor and screenwriter and comedian Varun Grover.
