Blue Metropolis International Literary Festival, 28 April-4 May, 2022: Online. 5-8 May, 2022: In person, Montreal, Canada.
The 24th Blue Metropolis International Literary Festival offers numerous thought-provoking, unbridled, multilingual authors and multicultural events in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Hebrew, Welsh, Ukrainian and Arabic. The Festival is thrilled to be back with live events from May 5-8 and FREE online from Apr. 28-May 4. Explore contemporary literary conversations, performances and launches, with science and ecology’s relationships to literature, and ‘age, time and literature’ as some of this year’s themes, centering around the question: What age are we? Planet, society, people. In addition, this year there will be a special focus on Ukraine during the in-person sessions. Ukraine is in the throes of a tragedy. What can literature do against war? Plenty—war is inhuman; literature is one of the best outlets humanity has to offer.
