About Lucknow Literature Festival
Lucknow Expressions Society is a nonprofit organisation established in September 2013 under the Societies Registration Act 1860. Right from its inception LES has strove to be the platform for showcasing culture, literature and literary tourism.
What began as a humble effort to bring together Cultural, literary and artistic talent in the city through book readings and baithaks turned into the biggest interface of Awadhi and UP culture with the country and the world at large. Over the years we have tried to keep alive folklore, folk music and cuisine other than nurturing budding writers through book launches and showcasing the most reputed faces in literature, arts and culture to the state.
Our signature event the Lucknow Literature Festival, now six years old, has put Uttar Pradesh right back on the literary map of the country. With the help and support of the government, LES hopes to take these baby steps to their rightful end of being one of the biggest literary and cultural events of the country, immaculately preserving and emanating cultural and literary traditions of the city in the process.
