Blue Metropolis 2016 lineup announced March 22

Some really exciting stuff coming up in April as we finalize the details for the 2016 Festival. As usual, we are at Hotel 10, on the corner of St-Laurent and Sherbrooke and on March 22 at 11am, we announce our entire 2016 Festival program including:

  • Our Grand Literary Prize (past winners have included Mavis Gallant, Richard Ford, Norman Mailer, Joyce Carol Oates, A.S. Byatt, among many others)
  • Our Premio Azul for Spanish-language writing (past winners: Junot Díaz, Luis Alberto Urrea, Sergio Ramirez)
  • Our First Peoples Literary Prize (last year's winner was poet Annharte)
  • Our Words to Change Prize, a prize which honours a writer whose work connects communities (last year the winner was Gene Luen Yang of superman fame!).
We also have a long list of big name writers coming in from 10 countries, exploring all kinds of fun, smart and engaging topics.

The Festival runs April 11 to 17, 2016!

Stay tuned for March 22 when tickets go on sale!
