Bangalore Book Festival on a grand scale continuously from 2003 onwards, organizing seminars on book Publishing, conducting raids on booksellers who are selling pirated books with the help of police etc., Another important aspect of Bangalore Book Festival is organizing cultural activities during BBF as book industry and cultural activities go hand in hand. By this our Association wants to support the local artistes as part of our mission. Great artists like Shir Shimoga Subbanna, Shri Ashwath, Shri Vidyabhushan and Hamsalekha’s troupe have performed on this stage. Entertaining and educating plays like ALL THE BEST and MYSORE MALLIGE have been staged in this prestigious platform. BBPA has organized many Book Release functions and conversation with media personalities as part of BANGALORE BOOK FESTIVAL.
The next edition of BANGALORE BOOK FESTIVAL 2009 is scheduled from November 06, 2009 to November 15, 2009 at Palace Grounds. The necessary brochure and application forms can be seen on this website.
