The mega-chain bookstores are okay for catching up on Oprah’s latest picks and grabbing a copy of Gweneth Paltrow’s latest cookbook, but what if you want something a tad more unique? Something local, perhaps? The Small Press of Toronto (SpoT) Book Fair is just what the bibliophile ordered. The spring fair will feature zines, graphic novels, children’s books, magazines, chapbooks, and comics from local and cross-Canada authors and publishers.
Come out to Hart House (7 Hart House Circle, University of Toronto), Sunday June 19 from 11am to 5pm and check out what is happening in the small press and indie arts scene! Note: paid parking is available on Hart House Circle — a full day is only $7.
