Politics & Prose is heading to India, and we’re inviting book lovers to come along on a ten-day journey in January 2013. The trip begins in New Delhi and culminates with a visit to the spectacular Jaipur Literature Festival.

Considered the crown jewel of the literary festival world, and described by Time as “Asia’s most prestigious celebration of local and international writing,” the Jaipur Literature Festival features over 250 authors from around the globe. This year’s authors in attendance include (from top left) Noam Chomsky, Bill Bryson, Elizabeth Gilbert, Ariel Dorfman, Umberto Eco, Jhumpa Lahiri, Philip Pullman, Monica Ali and Michael Palin!

At the Jaipur Literature Festival we will have exclusive access to authors and an opportunity to chat with prize-winning author and festival organizer William Dalrymple. The trip runs January 21-31, 2013 and sign-up closes in late October. Politics & Prose is organizing the trip with Academic Travel Abroad, whose other partner institutions include National Geographic and the Smithsonian Institution.
