Blue Metropolis Montreal International Literary Festival 2023 Edition
Dates: April 27-30, 2023 Venue: Hotel10
The 25th-anniversary theme is the future: the future of borders, the future of democracy, the future of literature, the future of identities, and the future of the planet. Not for nostalgia, but with curiosity, vigour, an appetite for knowledge, debates, literature, books, and diverse voices—new, experienced, dissonant, disturbing, necessary.
Twenty-five years ago, when she created the Blue Metropolis Literary Festival along with a few others, Linda Leith wanted to bring cultures and languages together through literature, beyond the usual divides. Already, Blue Met was looking to the future. And 25 years later, the adventure continues.
