Contemporary Pakistan in literature, music, art, popular culture and more

The London edition of the celebrated Lahore Literary Festival returns to the British Library for a one-day extravaganza devoted to contemporary Pakistan covering literature, music, art, popular culture and more.

Speakers include author Fatima Bhutto, historian Ayesha Jalal, artist Waqas Khan, former Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger, and television drama director and producer Sultana Siddiqui.

The home-edition in Lahore itself earlier this year drew over 57,000 book-lovers, with speakers including Fatima Bhutto, Mohsin Hamid, Pankaj Mishra, Eugene Rogan, Leila Aboulela, and Owen Bennett-Jones among many others.
An additional event with The Saami Brothers Qawwal in performance follows the Festival, which is ticketed seperately
