The Karachi Literature Festival or also known as KLF is beginning this week from March 4th to March 6th. It is a merry news for all the book fanatics who are always looking for such festivals, and the credit goes to Karachi Press Club for making sure that deep and dark souls of the book lovers, in Karachi are satisfied. However, this year it is even more special because the 13th KLF is in celebration of Pakistan’s 75th year of independence.
Lovers of art, culture, literature and history will have a chance to get together and satisfy their creative whims after mingling with their kind. But also, those who do not have this passion for books can still partake in this festival and see for themselves the beauty of literature and culture.
Language is a beautiful thing. There are so many languages out there in each and everyone is unique in its own way. And it mainly for all the lovers out there so that they never run out of words to express their true emotions for the ones that they love.
Art is the expression of human beings in their truest and raw forms. If you want to know who a person is deep down then all that you have do is see what they paint and how they paint it. Art has the ability to show what lies within a person more profoundly than words can describe.
The last KLF was in 2020 December before lockdown, and in the last one-year people have not had the opportunity to come together and celebrate various forms of art.
Oxford University Press (OUP) Pakistan Managing Director Arshad Saeed Husain said, ‘’With that we realised that the reach [of KLF] increases manifold,”
He also said, ‘’this gave them the idea of conducting different sessions digitally as well as physically. Since the pandemic is not over yet, he stressed on complying with the Covid-19 SOPs, saying that only fully vaccinated people will be allowed to attend the event in person.’’
The three-day event will explore the country’s achievements through a variety of thought-provoking panel discussions and book launches, which will be broadcast live around the world on OUP’s social media channels, and bring together over 200 nationals
For all those who live in Karachi – this weekend you have a thing to do to learn, experience and see art. Don’t miss out!
