This year’s Istanbul International Literature Festival features over 80 speakers participating in events all over the city. There are a wide variety of events and topics, from spoken word performances to panels on children’s literature, intercultural poetry, book-to-film adaptations and concerts. We are particularly looking forward to the Bosphorus Review Translation Panel at KargART on May 6.
