South Bays in Harbourfront Centre, September 27 at 6:30pm ET.

“We come back together, only to fall apart.”

TIFA is proud to present our new collection of writing penned by some of the world’s most distinctive voices. We invited 11 authors to respond to a phrase that encapsulates elements of life in 2022. Join us daily to hear authors read their newly commissioned work as part of our free, outdoor programming.

This event features award-winning poet and children’s writer Áine Ní Ghlinn, who is the current Laureate na nÓg/Children’s Literature Laureate of Ireland.

The Ghlinn reading will be followed by a PEN Canada Writers in Prison Reading; you’ll hear Festival authors perform free readings of short prose and verse written by imprisoned writers from around the world including journalists, literary critics, filmmakers and a Nobel peace laureate. Curated in partnership with PEN Canada, an organization that defends freedom of expression and promotes global community through literature.

Please note this event has been moved from the outdoor Word Lab tent to the South Bays inside Harbourfront Centre.

Presented with support from Culture Ireland.
