The Kochi International Book Festival celebrates its Silver Anniversary, 26 years of efforts and accomplishments. A spotlight on books and writers around the world, the 26th edition of Bookfest, will be held from December 01_ 10, 2023, at our usual venue, the Ernakulathappan Grounds, Kochi.
We started with a few, in 1997, and now we are many, in terms of numbers, talents and creativity, emerging as the largest Bookfest in Kerala and also the biggest in the country organized by a nonprofit charity, created to promote reading and encourage writing. Over the years, the Bookfest venue has moved into an annual pilgrimage site for bibliophiles, publishers and book sellers.
Since we began the Kochi Literature Festival in 2016, held simultaneously with the Bookfest, literally hundreds of national and international, iconic and debut authors have graced our stages and hundreds of thousands of people have experienced vibrant and spirited discussions with writers.
