Focus On: IFOA Ontario!

IFOA Ontario logo

Now in its seventh year, IFOA Ontario (presented by Lit on Tour) is the spectacular annual literary festival that brings some of the best writers from Canada and around the world to bookstores, libraries and communities across Ontario. That's 28 Canadian and international authors, 14 Ontario locations and 16 incredible days. Writers such as Catherine Bush, Margaret Drabble, Vincent Lam and Annabel Lyon have been invited to locations from Windsor to Parry Sound to Thunder Bay and everywhere inbetween, and the best part is that these authors are just as excited to make the journey to these unique cities and towns as we are to host them. IFOA Ontario 2013 runs from October 19 to November 3.

Lit on Tour also presents Write Across Ontario, a youth writing competition that invites students to submit stories written in response to story starters written by some of our favourite authors.

Stay with Open Book throughout the month of October as we Focus On: IFOA Ontario, bringing you author interviews, comprehensive event listings and contests galore for books by participating authors and tickets to individual events.
