"LIBERATION THROUGH LITERATURE" - the Toronto Urban Book Expo
The Toronto Urban Book Expo (TUBE) is an annual exposition where authors and publishers have the opportunity to display and communicate their projects, explore international networking opportunities, and participate in informative sessions with their peers, experts, and supporters in literature.
Surrounding the Emancipation Day long weekend in Toronto, Ontario, TUBE highlights published and self-published writers and their books. Our event has particularly resonated with guests from international cultural communities presenting Urban Fiction, African-American Fiction, Caribbean Fiction, Multicultural Literature, Motivational Texts, Autobiographies, and Diverse/Inclusive Children’s Books. Since 2014, we have hosted nearly 100 writers/authors--here's a list of how to stay connected with them and continue to support their work!
We welcome ALL writers to participate and ALL book lovers are welcome to attend this celebration of writers and literature! Details about #TUBE2020 coming soon!
