The novelist behind the title of the upcoming Tanpınar Literature Festival, Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar, caught the world's attention when his 1961 novel "Saatleri Ayarlama Enstitüsü" (The Time Regulation Institute) was published as a Penguin Classic last year. Tanpınar also lent his name to Turkey's fourth museum-library, altered from an Ottoman-era pavilion next to Istanbul's Gülhane Park. But the prolific author has already been celebrated for the last seven years in an annual literary festival. A dynamic setting for international dialogue, the Istanbul Tanpınar Literature Festival (ITEF) will welcome 30 foreign authors from 26 countries next month.From May 4-8, the four-day festival will revolve around the theme "Şehir ve Sınırlar" (City and Frontiers), while covering interesting discussion topics during numerous talks and sub-events. Each year, the theme is decided by authors who participated in the previous year's festival. With its diverse international guests, the ITEF follows in the footsteps of Tanpınar who once successfully blended Turkish and Western cultures in his writings. Interested visitors will witness the life and literary world of authors from different cultural backgrounds and how they interpret literature based on their personal views.
