Virtual Bookfest/Festival du livre promises broad Canadian line-up

BookFest/Festival du livre will take a virtual approach this year to bringing an outstanding line-up of Canadian authors to the public October 15 to 18, entirely free of charge.

The festival, in its 19th year, will deliver a varied and full slate of diverse voices from BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ authors, fiction and non-fiction perspectives -- highlighted each year by the Poetry Café. This year’s Saturday evening spotlight event will feature Desmond Cole, bestselling author of, The Skin We’re In: A Year of Black Resistance and Power.
