By now you’ve surely heard that Kunzum GK2 has transformed. After months of hard work and even harder secret-keeping, we launched an exclusive Penguin store on the second floor of the GK2 outlet, Penguin at Kunzum. Then, on February 26, Theatre Kunzum premiered on the third floor with superstar and author Kabir Bedi as our first guest! Now, Kunzum GK2 is set to host the French LitFest 2023—in association with the Embassy of France and The French Institute in India—on Saturday, March 4.
The French Litfest 2023 is ‘a literary crossfit of discussions, debates, poetry recitals, and workshops for all age groups’. On the day, you can listen to nine authors, including Simon Lamouret, Susie Morgenstern, Corinne Morel Darleux, Lisa Mandel, Benjamin Chaud, François-Henri Désérable, and Karthika Nair, in conversation with experts like Devika Sharma and Kanishka Gupta (literary agent and the founder of Writer’s Side, the largest literary agency and consultancy in South Asia). The fest will feature a series of 30-minute discussions, poetry recitals, and workshops—starting at 3.30pm on March 4. Detailed schedule below!
