ITEF Istanbul International Literature Festival aims to position literature as a branch of art that appeals to large audiences.

“We were looking back at the city from out at sea… The city seemed pure and untouched; unharmed, unblemished, the white of the mist veiling everything and anything which could blight the view. It was like a vision from one of the myths of old, emerging for a fleeting moment before the light of the day… A newly founded city, a new start, shimmering in the grey light of dawn… Young, vibrant, full of hope…” A Memento for İstanbul, Ahmet Ümit Ahmet Ümit, the first author you think of when you think of cities in fiction, will talk about cities and their dreams.
