BOOKED! is a brand new readers’ festival for ALL booklovers! From chick-lit to horror; from politics to pop culture; it doesn’t matter if you read a book a week or one a year, you’ll find an event you simply can’t miss at BOOKED!
Featuring over 50 authors from across Canada and around the world at events throughout Toronto, BOOKED! is your chance to meet the authors behind the books you love and to get a “sneak preview” of their upcoming books, to shop for new releases and best-sellers and to have your favourite books signed by the authors.
Plus, BOOKED! features 2 full days of children’s programming at Historic Fort York and the Harbourfront Centre that will delight both parents and kids—and teachers, too.
Some BOOKED! events are absolutely free—those that require tickets can be bought through this site.
