TIFA’s Delegate Programme is an opportunity for local authors and journalists to enrich the level of discussion among book lovers throughout the Festival. Returning Delegate Danielle Bourgon shares her experience at #FestofAuthors19 below.
It's that time of year again when the pressure to find the right gift for the book lovers in your life can feel downright stifling. Thankfully, this list has got you covered. Want a non-fiction book? Got it. Want to wow them with award-winners? On it. What about the up-and-comers? Did you have to ask? There are also book adjacent gifts that would make a literary enthusiast ecstatic.
