YoungIFOA: International Festival of Authors (Toronto)


International Festival of Authors is held annually at Toronto's Harbourfront and always includes events for children and young adults. YoungIFOA programs provides them with the opportunities to meet authors, ask questions, listen to readings and get their books autographed. There are even bookplate-making workshops.

Here are the four YoungIFOA events for 2013, with a few images to remind readers of the authors' books:
