Non fiction festival comes to Delhi

IANS  |  New Delhi 

A two-day Non Fiction Festival will make its debut here Nov 30 with eminent authors from diverse fields discussing subjects like economy, business, national security and international relations.

The first edition of the festival took place in Mumbai in June, and the organisers want to deliberate on "serious" and "topical" subjects through this festival that will end Nov 1.

"Aimed at bringing together non fiction writers and readers together, this festival will bring together students, academicians and readers alike," said a statement by the organisers, LeapVault, here Monday.

Issues that are relevant to the Indian and global socio-political scenario will be discussed in detail by speakers like Dipankar Gupta, Pavan Varma, Indrajit Hazra and many others.

Topics like "India: The Future is Now", "India: The Past is Present", "Internal Security and Foreign Policy: A Nation at Risk", and "News Non-fiction?" - will provide a gamut of information from the experts of the related fields.

The festival will take place at the Habitat Centre.
