Organizers for the Antigua and Barbuda International Literary Festival just announced that the Festival will not take place as planned this year. They cited lack of funds as the reason for the cancellation. “Due to the current economic climate it has been difficult to procure the funds we need. So we have decided to suspend the event for this year,” said Festival co-founder Pamela Arthurton. Arthurton added that most likely they will look at staging the Festival every two years rather than every year. “That way, we can really concentrate on bringing in the best authors and putting on a valuable and enjoyable event.”
