The Kolkata Literary Meet happening along with the Kolkata
Book Fair is a double delight for bibliophiles. With prominent authors and
poets gracing the event, KaLaM as its “daaknaam” goes is a perfect place for
every book lover to hang out.

The event also has a lecture, an award which has been initiated
in memory of Gangopadhayay who has been an integral part of the fair since its
inception. Gangopadhyay’s works will be discussed at length at the Kolkata
