Communicating Urban Literature & Culture

Kya Publishing

​​Toronto Urban Book Expo (TUBE)


Kya Publishing’s TUBE is the only Canadian event dedicated to celebrating urban fiction. It is an annual exposition of contemporary urban writers where authors and publishers have the opportunity to display, sell, and communicate their projects while promoting support and recognition for urban literature, literacy, and culture.

TUBE highlights published and self-published urban writers and their books—it also features publishers of urban fiction, and guests from the Canadian literary and international urban cultural communities selling Canadian Urban Fiction, African-American Fiction, Caribbean Fiction, Multicultural Literature, Motivational Texts, Autobiographies, and Diverse Children’s Books.


​Partial proceeds from this event support Kya Publishing’s Kya Keys Book Donation Program.
