IFOA | International Festival of Authors
IFOA – June 2017
As we say goodbye to IFOA Weekly until its September return, we look ahead to more Toronto Lit Up events in June. Join IFOA and the Toronto Arts Council as they launch the works of Catherine Graham, Domenico Capilongo, Irene Guilford, Robert Marrone and the authors behind The Unpublished City.
Celebrate the new books of local authors with us this month and visit our website for exclusive content, podcasts and more!
The Toronto Arts Council (TAC) and the International Festival of Authors (IFOA) have partnered on Toronto Lit Up, a three-year initiative designed to spotlight Toronto writers. The IFOA will host book launch parties throughout the year at different venues across the city. The goal of this program is to provide Toronto authors with significant presentation opportunities and to allow the public to access more of the work of its local writing community.
