We polled the staff, and what we love best about working for the Toronto International Festival of Authors (TIFA) is connecting with fellow book lovers like you! Many of us had the chance to meet many of you during the 39th edition of the Festival in 2018, by reading your social media posts, and striking up conversations in signing lines, in the Festival Hub and just before the authors hit the stage. Now, we’re hoping this post will help you get to know us a little better–as well as some of your fellow attendees!

Why not talk to Carroll about the women who’ve inspired her, her interest in body horror and her upcoming graphic novel, When I Arrived at the Castle, ahead of the event?
