Ontario Touring Programme

Each year the Toronto International Festival of Authors brings the world’s most exciting contemporary writers to communities across Ontario.

Now in its 12th year, Lit On Tour — the provincial outreach programme of the Toronto International Festival of Authors — has partnered with grassroots networks and strong community organizations to connect readers province-wide with immersive literary activities. Events include book signings, readings, authors in conversation and Q&A sessions that invoke a sense of curiosity and enthusiasm for the written word.

Audiences have the opportunity to take part in enriching activities that might not otherwise be available in their region, while authors and publishers enjoy inroads to reaching new audiences.



“It’s kind of a feather in our cap to get on the Ontario circuit. I think it’s a very nice addition to our sort of cultural reputation. These are world-class authors, internationally acclaimed authors, reading in Owen Sound, and not just one but four. It’s an exciting partnership.”
