The 25th anniversary edition of the Blue Metropolis International Literary Festival will launch on April 12, 2023, with online events gradually made available on our website; the in-person Festival event will take place from April 27 to 30, 2023.
The 25th anniversary theme is the future: the future of borders, the future of democracy, the future of literature, the future of identities, 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.
