The Pittsburgh International Literary Festival (LitFest) is a 10 day event that considers themes of migration, identity, and displacement with an emphasis on works in translation.
It brings authors, translators, and other artists together for bilingual readings, conversations about the craft of translation, and conversations on intersection of translation and important social justice topics. Such topics include such as BIPOC representation in the ranks of translators, linguistic inclusion of the LGBTQIA+ community, and the politics of publishing, among other topics.
