Islamabad Literature Festival 2016

Fourth Islamabad Literature Festival or ILF 2016 is in the last preparations by Oxford University Press. People of Islamabad are anxiously waiting for this mega event from 15th April to 17th April 2016 at Lok Virsa Museum, in which there would be around 165 authors, academic, journalists and artists from Pakistan and abroad.

This is the fourth Literature Festival happening in Islamabad and so far this festival has grown in the city. In comparison to the first Literature Festival in the capital city, the number of audience has immensely increased with years. Obviously, the best thing about this festival is common public being exposed to their favorite writers. There would be around 151 Pakistani and 14 international speakers in the coming ILF 2016. On the other hand, there would be around 20 books, which shall be launched.

Similar to the Karachi Literature Festival, ILF 2016 will also have Urdu, as well as, English Mushaira. Being free and open to all, this platform provides a very good opportunity for the people of Islamabad, who have literary taste and really enjoy such kinds of events taking place locally.

There would be key sponsors sponsoring the event, along with other modes of entertainment for people. Other than the people of Islamabad, people of Rawalpindi would also be attending this event. There would be people coming from other cities as well. Different international food chains would offer their food and beverage services to all the guests coming to Islamabad Literature Festival 2016. 

Afreen is a young writer and visionary towards life predominantly. I believe that writing is similar to life; it inspires surprises and creates. Being a Literature Masters, I am passionate about viewing the world with literary spectacle. Solely in love with this beautiful part of Universe called Pakistan, I am creating words and ideas for CharchaGuru.
