What’s the Story?

Literacy On Tour (Lit On Tour) began as an initiative of the Toronto International Festival of Authors, a registered Canadian non-profit charitable organisation that presents an 11-day literary festival in Toronto each year.

Now in its twelfth year, Lit On Tour partners with libraries, bookstores, universities and communities to present the best writers of contemporary literature across the province. Events include readings, interviews, lectures, round table discussions and public book signings, as well as a focus on bringing authors into the classroom for students of all ages through our Young Readers programme.

“[IFOA Ontario] was a real highlight of my stay… I would totally recommend a trip out of town to any visiting authors.”
