LitFest returns October 16-26, 2014

Watch this space starting in June/July for previews and announcements.


LitFest reading list meets little free library

More than 30 amazing authors will be featured at LitFest this fall, so why not add some of their books to your reading list?
You can do this the old-fashioned way— by buying, borrowing, or downloading. But this year, LitFest is providing you with another intriguing option.
Inspired by Oliver neighbourhood’s Little Free Libraries experiment and supported by the Downtown Business Association, LitFest authors’ books are coming to the streets of downtown Edmonton for everyone to enjoy!
Soon you will be able to stop by a beautifully revamped newspaper box in Edmonton’s downtown, grab a book written by a LitFest author, and trade it in for another book when you’re done. Keep your eyes open for more details—and prizes!
Pssst . . . we CAN let you in on a little secret! An Edmonton artist is collaborating with us to make this the best new initiative. Details revealed soon!

Thanks and congratulations to the 4,000 patrons, hundred volunteers and fifty-plus writers who contributed to fantastic conversations and performances at LitFest 2013. We will be posting photos and more details from the festival soon, and will hope that you join us again for LitFest 2014, October 17-26.
