The literary meet will be inaugurated by lyricist and screenwriter Javed Akhtar. He will be sharing his views on multiple topics during the festival.
Six days of the spellbinding sessions, being held after a gap of one year due to the pandemic, will be witness to some of the best literary minds across the country, the organisers said in a statement.
The annual literary festival will also host performances every day in various art forms.
The audience will have the chance to hear the untold stories from Usha Uthup and Remo Fernandes. Noted author Kunal Bose will be present with his latest book and the screening of Goutam Ghose's short film on the pandemic will be held during the festival.
This edition of the meet coincides with 100 years of the Victoria Memorial Hall. A session will be held to discuss Kolkata's romance with the memorial across the century, and the legacy and the collection of work of Abanindranath Tagore on his 150th birth anniversary.
Some sessions of the festival will also be held at GD Birla Sabhaghar.
