More authors on their way!

Here’s a little background info, friends: the International Festival of Authors is part of Authors at Harbourfront Centre programming, which includes the fabulous weekly reading series that continues February 1! We’ve been busy reading books and inviting incredible authors including Colin McAdam, Taiye Selasi, Ruth Ozeki, Linwood Barclay and many more. Over the coming weeks we’ll roll out our event schedule and share special features with you here on the blog, including interviews with the authors.

First up is a free event with the spoken word artist and entrepreneur Dwayne Morgan on February 1, then we have a night celebrating Toronto with Edward Keenan and Ivor Tossell on February 20 and an evening with the Charles Taylor Prize finalists on February 27. Our events range from readings to onstage interviews, and are followed by an opportunity to meet the authors. Excited? We know we are.
