Toronto International Book Fair 2014

One of the best perks of being a reader is that today, more than ever, it’s easy to connect with the people who write all the incredible books that are on your bookshelves. You can write them a message on Facebook, you can share your reaction with them in 140 characters and you can ask them anything with the help of Reddit. But there are also traditional ways to connect with authors, you can go to one of their readings, a hosted bookstore event or, in some cases, you can invite them to your book club. Either way you spin it, you now have access to authors.

TIBF-EN-FR

At the Toronto International Book Fair, you can spend three full days connecting with over 400 of your favourite authors! Thanks to Rita Davies and John Calabro, now Executive Directors of the TIBF, and with advice from an Advisory Committee (comprised of leading figures in the publishing industry), they did some research and discovered that Toronto was in need and want of a book fair and voila, the Toronto International Book Fair was born. As someone who loves literature and can’t always fly to the US to attend book conventions, I’m so thrilled that we’re going to have a Canadian book fair. I’m sure most of you feel the same way and for the low cost of $15.00 for a 3 day pass, it sounds as if it will be a fabulous event! Come out and support your love of reading on November 13-16. All the details about the book fair are listed below.
