Krithi International Book Fair 2020

Krithi is the international festival of books and authors, opening up a vast world of literature for readers, budding writers and literature enthusiasts of different generations. The last editions of Krithi concluded with great applause. Thus, the expectations are higher for our third edition, ‘Krithi2020’. ‘Samskarathinte Nerarivu (Along with the Real Culture)’ is the theme of Krithi2020.

The aim of Krithi2020 is to promote new writers and reading habit knowing the true essence of culture and environment. As a part of this, Krithi launched a campaign ‘A Book for a Child’, which is to develop the reading habit of children by ensuring a better nation with resourceful people. Krithi2020 focuses on the quality and purpose of the event to enlighten everyone throughout our journey. It’s a great privilege that we could add three more languages like Gujarati, Bengali, and Hindi this year. Apart from that, more speakers and publishers willingly came forward to become a part of Krithi2020 along with art, food and literary fest.
