sunlit-festivalThe fifth annual SunLit Festival brings together cultural organizations, writers, artists, and businesses for 18 days of “litertainment.” This year’s SunLit Festival activities will begin with a kick-off party from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Chihuly Collection on Thursday, April 11. Produced by Keep St. Pete Lit, the celebration of literary arts will continue until April 28.

SunLit Festival is a confederation of like-minded literary, cultural, and civic organizations coordinating their individual efforts for the common goal of advancing the enjoyment of books, reading, writing, and the classic art of letterpress printing.

Literary and other arts & cultural circles intersect during the fourth annual SunLit Festival, a springtime celebration of the written word. SunLit Festival 2019 brings together over 35 various organizations and arts disciplines to celebrate literacy, literature, reading, and writing for days of intoxicating “Litertainment” and just plain fun.

Literature represents a moment in time. It is an exploration of our history, an expression of our experiences and of the life that surrounds us. It is a discussion of who we are, how we got that way and what choices we can make to shape our future.
