The International Festival of Authors begins this week at the Harbourfront Centre. Running from October 17 to 27 the IFOA is the highlight of the literary year in Canada. This is great opportunity to attend readings and rub elbows with favourites like Margaret Atwood, Ian Rankin, Isabelle Allende, Elizabeth Hay, Peter Robinson, and more!

The IFOA includes readings, interviews, lectures and round table discussions as well as public book signings and a festival bookstore. The IFOA also presents a number of special events including readings by Scotiabank Giller Prize and Governor General’s Literary Awards finalists, as well as the highly anticipated awarding of the Harbourfront Festival Prize.

Literary fans in Georgina, a drive down to the city might be in order!
