​​We were really looking forward to meeting with you all again, from July 29 through July 31 here in Toronto to celebrate our 6th Toronto Urban Book Expo, in the days leading up to Emancipation Day in Ontario, Canada and Emancipation Month in Toronto. In lieu of this year's in-person Writer's Retreat & Conference, we featured a modified version of #TUBE2020 highlighting of words of reflection, empowerment, greetings, and support from writers from Canada, the U.S., the Caribbean, and Africa. We hope their voices (and books) can be used as tools for enlightenment and inspiration. We invite you to access the individual virtual presentations by clicking on the author photos below:
