What’s the Story?

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

Now in its eleventh year, Lit On Tour partners with libraries, bookstores, universities and communities to present the best writers of contemporary literature across the province through the IFOA Ontario programme. 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.

“I liked how pleased the audiences were to see us.  They clearly did note, and appreciate, the effort IFOA had taken to make these events work, and ‘rewarded’ the authors with their enthusiasm. ”
