LitFest provides a platform for conversations that challenge, intrigue, and inspire. From economy and ecology to personal stories and cultural commentary, we strive to present important and diverse topics to our audiences.
Support Many Voices
Our authors and presenters come from all walks of life, and each one is remunerated for their participation at LitFest. Every year we engage 50+ writers and support their work, and all donations we receive contribute to the costs of festival programming.
Bring Nonfiction to Life
We rely on the support of individual readers and organizations to keep our events timely, relevant, and exciting. We want to cover the subjects and books that matter to you, and anyone can play a role in helping us bring these conversations off the page and onto our stages.
LitFest is a celebration, a moveable feast of nonfiction. We don't just sit around and read books (although we do that too). At LitFest, books about real life come off the page. Avid readers connect with writers through a series of live events, great conversations, and exciting gatherings for 11 days every October in Edmonton, AB.
