Where South Asia Meets the World
Two years ago, the Jaipur Literature Festival began an important new initiative: Jaipur BookMark (JBM). Conceptualized as a B2B segment, JBM is held parallel to the main festival and provides a platform for publishers, literary agents, translation agencies and writers to meet, talk business deals, listen to speakers from across the world and perhaps even sign the occasional contract. This year’s event attracted delegations from the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, France, Norway as well as as key Indian language publishers.
