Blue Met brings you CanLit and more
The Blue Metropolis Montreal International Literary Festival, the Blue Met Foundation’s most exciting yearly event, kicks off its 9th year with a very special guest.
Canada’s most celebrated writer, Margaret Atwood, will attend the opening ceremony April 25, when she will receive the Foundation’s Literary Grand Prix, honouring her lifetime achievment as a writer.

Atwood began her career as a poet. Since publishing her first novel, The Edible Woman in 1969, her work, touching an all genres of writing, has been translated into 30 languages. Past recipients have included Marie-Claire Blais, Norman Mailer, Mavis Gallant, Carlos Fuentes and Michel Tremblay.
This year’s theme is Free Spirits, reflecting the fact that writers, though they create in solitude, have the potential to change the world through their ideas.
Events will be held until April 29 in several languages. To date, more than 1,300 writers  and 53,000 lovers of literature have participated in the Festival.
The Blue Metroplis Foundation is a registered non-profit organization, established in 1997 to raise the public’s awareness and appreciation of writers and writing.
The opening ceremony begins at 6 pm at the Delta Centre-Ville Hotel, 777 University St. Tickets cost $50. For more information, call 1-800-361-4595 or visit www.bluemetropolis.org
