International Festival of Authors at Harbourfront !
October 24 – October 31, 2013 IFOA presents the finest international novelists, poets, playwrights, short story writers and biographers, and provides Canadian writers with an internationally recognized forum in which to present their work. Every year, the IFOA devotes a number of events to authors and books within a particular focus. This year, we are delighted to present two major focuses: Brave New Word, a programme featuring young and emerging authors from Canada and abroad, and Found in Translation, a yearly Festival focus on the art of literary translation with the goal of increasing Canadian awareness of international talent – the festival line-up looks fantastic!
