About Us

Are you frustrated that many author/book festivals in the Toronto area seem to cater to well-established and famous people like Margaret Atwood and Lee Maracle while numerous other books written by Canadian and other writers get ignored?

If so, you're invited to join our grassroots-oriented author, publisher, bookseller and literary services festival.

Our Toronto Book Expo will take place at Hart House in the University of Toronto’s downtown campus on Thursday, November 21, 2019. Participate by becoming an exhibitor.

Our Toronto Book Expo team seeks to use our broad experience in the Canadian book publishing industry to boost the commercial success of all of our exhibitors, and to facilitate a professional networking environment among all participantsto further boost commercial success.

We aim to showcase the literary cultural vitality of Toronto, and of Canada, while supporting a fun and engaging environment for members of the public from all cultural backgrounds, women and LGBTQ communities. It’s a wonderful opportunity to get to know local Toronto and Canadian talent while networking and discovering new opportunities to improve your skills as a writer, deepen your knowledge, and tap into a wide variety of book publishing services.

We also welcome international exhibitors.

We hope that this year's Toronto Book Expo will also facilitate the building of new friendships and new synergistic relationships among artists, technicians and writers/authors from all backgrounds and diversities on a non-discriminatory basis.
