Pages Festival Toronto

Toronto gets a new books and lit festival

Great news for Toronto's literary scene - Pages Festival + Conference will launch this March. If the name rings a bell, that's likely because this is put together by Marc Glassman, the former owner of Pages Books & Magazines as well as founder This Is Not A Reading Series. The format challenging fest will explore how new technologies effect the worlds of publishing and literary arts.

The Pages Festival is a unique concept in that it will mix lauded Canadian writers up with digital media artists and more. The fest will include presentations (pdf) by Atom Egoyan, Shawn Micallef and Dalton Higgins, a multimedia tribute to Susannah Moodie, and a graphic novel talk with Seth, Fiona Smyth, and Michael DeForge, plus way more. For those interested in how written language and publishing is evolving, this will be the place to be.

Pages Festival + Conference will take place between March 13 - 15 at The Randolph Theatre (736 Bathurst St) and The Tranzac Club (292 Brunswick Ave). Passes are $60, tickets $15, and half price rates are available for students.
