Montreal's coolest literary festival is just around the corner

Mar 19 2018, 7:41 pm

Blue Metropolis is one of the city’s best literary festivals. Taking place annually in April, this one-of-a-kind event dates back to 1999.

The festival has activities both in English and French, and features all sorts of events including readings, on-stage interviews, panel discussions, and writing workshops.

This year’s festival will take place between April 20 to 29 in venues all across the city. Ranging from Bonder’s Book Store in Montreal West, to the Plateau-Mont Royal Library, Montrealers far and wide have the opportunity to experience a variety of literary events in their home borough and beyond.
