Karachi (Web Desk) Adab Fest concluded on Sunday with its much hyped puppet show and a host of sessions that touched upon education, military rule in Pakistan, Islamaphobia in the West and women’s rights, among others.
The seed and idea of literature festivals caught on and
spread like wildfire in a forest. AdabFest is a movement to spread peace and
harmony through books, dialogue, debate, art, music, storytelling and dance and
through watching, listening and asking questions.
These thoughts were expressed by Ameena Saiyid, founder and director of Adab Festival Pakistan, at the closing ceremony on Sunday.
12 book launches and 13 sessions later, Adab Fest came to a close and its co-founder Ameena Saiyid addressed the audience, “For me AdabFest is a movement to spread peace and harmony through expression: that is through books, dialogue, debate, art, music, storytelling, and dance and through watching, listening, and asking questions.”
Here’s what books were launched and what was talked about on the third and final day of the literature festival.
