New York-based event was broadcast globally via a live webcast.

The Lahore Literary Festival (LLF) concluded its New York City edition on May 8 with audiences and panelists hailing it as the “ultimate use” of Pakistan’s soft power.

The two-day event, which commenced on May 7 and was ticketed at $20 to $25, sold out in April and was broadcast globally via a live webcast. The festival featured packed rooms of both Pakistani and American audiences and marks the first time a Pakistani literary festival has taken place abroad.

Part of a three-year partnership with Asia Society, the privately-funded event included live performances by Pakistani musicians and panels on the often-contentious Pakistan-U.S. relationship and Pakistani literature and art.
