The trustees of the Ooty Literary Festival have once again organized a fabulous festival proving that the hills are conducive to creative endeavors. The Ooty Literary Festival is held on second Friday and Saturday of September every year. This is the third edition of the Ooty Literary Festival. The Ooty Literary Festival is held in the Nilgiri Library since its inception from 2016. The idea to hold Literary Festival first came in the mind of Yash Muthanna. The managing Committee headed by Managing Trustee TGB Pinto discovered the Nilgiri will be a better place to hold a literary Festival as the many writers have settled in that place. The number of Schools present in the neighboring areas was also an inspiration for the Managing Committee behind choosing Ooty as the place to organize Literary Festival. This year also, the Ooty Literary Festival witness the presence of many stars from the Literary World. The prominent name includes Shanta Gokhale, Patrick French, Ranjit Hoskote, Mustansir Dalvi, Vishwajyoti Ghosh and Christopher Penn, apart from authors closer home like Srividya Sivakumar, Dr. V Srinivas, Peeyush Maniyambath and B Balasubramanian. One of the basic idea to organize the Literary Festival was to benefit the younger generation from established writers and their works. In pursuance of this, the host also invites student writers and make them visit nearby English and Tamil Medium School. The festival will be held on September 14 & 15, 2018, from 10.00 am to 5.15 pm. The venue is the Nilgiri Library, Hospital Road, Upper Bazaar, Ooty
