The sessions at KLF, aim to map literature through discussions on aspects of Science and Technology, Art, Cinema, Politics, Music, Environment, Literature, Pandemic and Its Impacts, Business and Entrepreneurship, Health, Art & Leisure, Travel & Tourism, Gender, Economy, Culture Genomics, History & Politics and various facets that shape human consciousness. 

The eminent speakers include Nobel Laureates, Jnanpith winners, Oscar winners, Booker prize recipients, Literary luminaries, film and theatre personalities, 

“It is a privilege to be back at KLF and to remind oneself why this is among India’s best literature festivals. The lineup of speakers is not only exceedingly impressive, the time and space allocated to writers across languages, and on themes that are so diverse, makes attendance a richly rewarding experience. The audience is extraordinarily good and invested in the festival, their enthusiasm palpable from the large distances many of them travel in order to be at KLF. And finally, that the festival is situated in Kozhikode- a city with such a remarkable past - makes KLF even more delightful," said author and historian Manu S Pillai.
