Book Summit 2018: Disrupt Your Publishing Game

Thursday, June 14, 2018 - 9am-5:30pm
Fleck Dance Theatre
Conference: Book Summit


Presented by the Book and Periodical Council and Humber College in association with the Toronto International Festival of Authors. Book Summit is taking place in conjunction with the Canadian Writers’ Summit.

As publishers recognize the need to become more reader-centric, we must develop new methods of connecting with all readers in every way possible. The conference will explore innovative marketing approaches in this digital age, while reflecting the importance of the writer, the bookstore, the library. Book Summit 2018 is about the challenge of selling and marketing in this current environment.

Join us for a day of inspiring speakers, connecting with colleagues, lake views, engaging workshops, networking opportunities, new friends and a delicious lunch.

CWS 2018 presents d’bi.young anitafrika

Thursday, June 14, 2018 - 8:00 PM
Fleck Dance Theatre
Keynote: Canadian Writers' Summit


Fresh off the press in time for the Canadian Writers’ Summit, d’bi.young anitafrika will be reading from her new autobiography, Memoir of An Ugly Duckling: My Life, Art & Method. From growing up in one of the most notorious garrison communities of Kingston Jamaica, to witnessing the evolution of Dub Poetry through one of its pioneers – her mother Anita Stewart – to contributing to radical Black feminist thought through theatre using the Anitafrika Method, d’bi.young’s keynote will focus on the artist’s accountability and responsibility.

This event is part of the Canadian Writers’ Summit (#CWS2018), a super-conference jointly hosted by a cohort of Canadian writer organizations. Members of all of these organizations are especially encouraged to attend, but #CWS2018 welcomes everyone and anyone interested in writing and publishing in Canada.

#CWS2018 takes place June 14–17, 2018 at Harbourfront Centre.
