We are starting sign-up for this event much earlier than usual this year, and as a result, we do not have any confirmed programming to share with you yet. For those of you who attended in previous years, you'll find that the programming will be similar, with a keynote address kicking off three simultaneous streams of programming that address all kinds of libraries. Last year's program included a keynote by Ryan North (Squirrel Girl), and programs on introducing graphic novels, building better collections, diversity, challenges, and much more!
Librarian & Educator Day is held in the Bram and Bluma Appel Salon at Toronto Reference Library, a block from the Yonge-Bloor station in downtown Toronto. Librarians and teachers may participate in Librarian & Educator Day for free, but must register via this page.
The Packs include quality titles selected by The Beguiling Library Services team and our publishing sponsors for their popularity and literary/artistic/social value, and are a great way to boost your graphic collection! During the Creators Lunch, you’ll be seated with a variety of local or international comics authors and artists. It’s a great time to build connections and get great insight into the world of graphic novels!
We’re happy to bill your school or institution for your Patron Pack, or you can purchase it and keep the books to yourself! You’ll see a flexible variety of payment options as you sign up.
The main exhibition of the Toronto Comic Arts Festival will occur on Saturday and Sunday, May 13th and 14th 2017 at Toronto Reference Library. More than 350 artists and authors will exhibit their works, accompanied by general-interest programming about comics and graphic novels. You should totally come! Admission is free, and there’s something for everyone!
