Devdan Chaudhuri “AKLF 2015 was a great experience. The Festival was marked with warmth and a welcoming spirit. AKLF is one of the most anticipated annual culture events in the city. Wishing you and your dedicated team, all the very best for the future.” Devdan Chaudhuri
Florence Noiville “I enjoyed the festival in Calcutta - not to mention the city itself of course, fascinating... I liked the choice of the speakers, the stimulating debates and the human scale of all events. Good memories is an understatement. I attended two other festivals afterwards but Calcutta has left something special in my mind…Again a big thank you and congratulations to the whole team.” Florence Noiville
John Elliott “Thank you…for hosting me at what was a splendid festival with marvellous programming, content and interesting speakers.” John Elliot
Kishwar Desai “It was delightful to meet all of you and to attend AKLF. Many thanks for your superb hospitality and support.” Kishwar Desai
Saskya Jain “Thank you for having me at the festival--I have to tell you that it was hands down my favourite and most special festival experience so far. I think it's very wise not to have events running parallel, as is the case at most festivals now, which usually leads to a 'browsing' audience that comes in and out and tries to catch a bit of everything, and to have a more intimate group of authors attending. I had some wonderful conversations with readers after my panel and got to meet and spend memorable hours with other authors--both old friends and new acquaintances. Last but not least, the organisation was impeccable. I truly enjoyed being there!” Saskya Jain
Tisca Chopra “It was a pleasure to be at the Festival. And I must commend the team who was so charming and gracious.”
Tisca Chopra
Zac O’Yeah “Thanks a lot for inviting me to the festival and I must tell you I had an awesome time. I was glad to see how the festival is growing bigger and better, and how it has become a central event on Kolkata's cultural calendar!”
Zac O’Yeah
