Toronto International Festival of Authors
The Toronto International Festival of Authors (TIFA) inspires and empowers book lovers with a breadth of bold, ambitious and accessible literary experiences. As Canada’s largest literary festival, the charitable organization provides engaging opportunities to meet, hear and learn from the world’s best contemporary writers and thinkers, and to celebrate the power of stories. Since 1974, TIFA has presented over 9,500 authors, including 22 Nobel Laureates, who represent diverse perspectives and a range of literary genres for all ages.
TIFA’s creative programs continue to adapt to changing times, capturing the most innovative and enlightening forms of storytelling, onstage and online. Alongside the flagship Festival, TIFA delivers a year-round program of events and activities that reflect Toronto to its residents, its literature to the nation, and its creative ambition to the world. TIFA will celebrate the 42nd edition of the Festival October 20–31, 2021.
