Torontoist will take some time off from long-weekend drinking and head to church. Not to atone for his sins, of which there are plenty, but to check out what the independent literary artists of Toronto have been cooking up while squirelled away in their basement apartments, lofts and bedrooms over the winter at the Small Press Book Fair.
Publishers such as Coach House, No Media Kings and Porcupine’s Quill will be there and journals/zines and mags big and small will do their best to sell you some summer reading. Also make sure you pick up one of these babies, they’re more popular than Chuck Cadman at a Liberal Party rally.
The book fair runs 11-5 at Trinity-St Paul’s Centre (427 Bloor St W).
