Toronto International Festival of Authors – Bringing a New World into Focus
October 22, 2020, 8:00 AM – November 1, 2020, 5:00 PM EDT
The Toronto International Festival of Authors (TIFA), Canada’s largest and longest-running festival of words and ideas, returns for its 41st edition in a brand new virtual format that will be primarily free and accessible from around the world. The Festival has expanded its programming this year, introducing new events and initiatives including a weekend of family-friendly activities with TIFA Kids!, a range of multilingual events, innovative digital apps and activities, and newly commissioned works that respond to our current experiences with COVID-19 and explore the unique character of the city of Toronto.
From October 22 to November 1, 2020, TIFA will bring together over 200 authors alongside musicians, artists and performers through live-streamed conversations, readings, performances, workshops and more, connecting communities and diving into important discussions relevant to these unprecedented times.
