Seemanchal International Literary Festival
This is the inaugural international literary event organised by Kitaab International, Singapore, in collaboration with Insan School, Kishanganj, Bihar. The birthplace of famous Hindi writer Phaneshwar Nath Renu, Seemanchal has remained a much neglected region of northeastern Bihar. Representing the multicultural ethos of India, the 10 million people who live in this part of the country profess many faiths and speak many languages and dialects. This annual literary festival celebates the spirit of humanity through literature and is dedicated to the gentle people of Seemanchal. More than 20 writers from India and abroad will participate in this festival.
