Read! Fest, an annual key event of the National Reading Movement, will be held from 9 June to 29 July 2017. This year as part of our effort to promote reading widely, the Fest will offer more than 150 exciting programmes in all languages at our public libraries.
From author talks to panel discussions and from workshops to film screenings, Read! Fest 2017 is a celebration and interpretation of this year’s theme: Spice. Variety is the spice of life, and with that in mind, we will be delivering a wide range of programmes to whet your literary appetite. Come explore how the search for flavour influences the world.
As we close the Fest with the National Reading Day on 29 July 2017, we invite you to spend some time with the written word. May the festival give zest and flavour to your reading journey. Click here for more details.
