A key component of the Anguilla Lit Fest is our Educational Outreach Campaign. The Champions of Literacy initiative allows for a cross-section of students from Anguilla’s Primary Schools to interact with the visiting authors, and for students from the Secondary School to attend the presentation of the event headliner as specially invited guests. We have also introduced an Adult Writers’ Workshop, which is a double session evening event.
The theme for the 8th Annual Anguilla Lit Fest, May 16 – 19, 2019, is Books, Beaches and a Better You. The line up promises to inspire, educate, motivate and uplift. The annual event is organized by the Anguilla Literary Foundation and is sponsored by the Government of Anguilla, the Anguilla Tourist Board and the Business Community of Anguilla.
“Anguilla Lit Fest is an important cultural event which the Government of Anguilla is pleased to support,” says Hon. Cardigan Connor, Parliamentary Secretary with Responsibility for Tourism, Sports, Youth and Culture. “We recognize and appreciate the significant role that the Literary Arts play in the development and preservation of our culture and heritage, and Lit Fest also offers visitors to Anguilla a uniquely enriching experience.”
