Book*hug (formerly BookThug) launched in 2004, with the commission of its first title from the International Festival of Authors. Since then, it’s continued to publish innovative and daring works that meaningfully contribute to and reflect contemporary culture. Join us in toasting Book*hug’s adventures in literature, at the Festival where it all began.

Hosted by Deborah Dundas. Special guests will be in attendance.

  • Deborah Dundas

    Deborah Dundas became the Books Editor at the Toronto Star after reviewing books for the paper for more than 15 years. She has worked in the media for more than 25 years – including stints as a books editor, but also in business, lifestyle, and national and city politics. She's worked at CTV and TVO, both as an editor/producer and reporting, interviewing or producing shows on emerging artists, popular writers and literary powerhouses. She's also lived and worked in Northern Ireland. She feels that the books beat is the perfect marriage of her diverse experience and interests.
