Harbourfront Centre's Literary Arts department, IFOA, is one of the oldest programming divisions in the organization, tracing its first readings back to June 1974. Programming runs from September to June and includes the annual International Festival of Authors (October), including YoungIFOA and IFOA Ontario, and the annual ALOUD: a Celebration for Young Readers with Forest of Reading® Festival of Trees™ (May).
IFOA also works with World Stage, School Visits, Summer weekend festivals, HarbourKIDS family programmes and Bill Boyle Artport visual art exhibitions to present international and Canadian authors across Harbourfront Centre programming.
