Montréal, World Book Capital 2005

The 7th annual Blue Metropolis Literary Festival launches today in Montreal and runs until April 3. While a great deal of it is focused on French writers, there are always quite a few interesting sessions in English.

There will be many literary events in Montreal this year, as UNESCO has named Montreal as World Book Capital for 2005. That status begins on April 23 and will be marked by a two day launch festivity, which includes the grand opening of Montreal’s new Grande Bibliothèque (the Big Library), which has been under construction for the last several years. It promises to be an amazing library. You can find out more about the World Book Capital events at the official website.
