Hello readers of the world! I’m here to shine some light on cool happenings coming to Toronto (CA)! It’s only 3 months away until Inspire! Toronto International Book Fair and that’s pretty exciting, right? Perhaps if you’re an avid traveler and reader, you just might want to schedule a trip from wherever you are to Toronto during the weekend of November 13-16, 2014. Just sayin’.
What is Inspire! Toronto International Book Fair?
From their website:
“INSPIRE! Toronto International Book Fair will be part exhibition, part market and part cultural festival, celebrating reading in all forms and embracing all facets of the book trade. It will be a place for readers to connect with those who write and produce the books they love—to learn, explore and be entertained, in all print and digital formats.”
Here’s a link to the full 2014 Schedule Line-up that was released yesterday (I think?), or you can click on the image above to take you there! I’ve provided a sample of Friday’s schedule below just so you can get a glimpse of how you can spend 72 hours (no sleep!) at the fair. (I do apologize for the sample looking extremely grainy and pixelated–this layout theme has small margins haha. You’d be better off opening up the link provided.)
There’s a wide mix of great International and Canadian authors attending the fair! Here are some notable names that might be of interest to you (not in any particular order):
- Margaret Atwood
- Jeff Kinney
- E. Lockhart
- Anne Rice
- Sylvia Day
- Deborah Harkness
- Maggie Stiefvater
- Gayle Forman
- …and many more! [Click here to peruse the attendance list]
This is going to be my ever first large-scale book event I’m attending and that’s pretty rad! I’ll likely be going with another fellow book-blogger, Savindi (The Streetlight Reader), and hopefully we’ll be able to give the deets on our experience. I’ll definitely follow up with more news as they’re made known to me. So yeah, check out the information on their site if you’re thinking about attending and get inspired!
