Program Chair Eileen Moore Davis said, “BookFest has always been an opportunity for authors to read their work, discuss their writing, ask questions from the audience, and converse with readers in an intimate and relaxed environment. “While we are grateful that technology has allowed us to continue the festival virtually in 2020 and 2021, we are thrilled to be able to bring the festival in person again this year across Canada. We are proud to welcome such a wonderful writer from and showcase beautiful venues across the city.”
