Keep Toronto Reading Festival 2011
The Keep Toronto Reading Festival is something I look forward to every year. During that one month, there is so much enthusiasm for books and reading that I can't help but feel excited.
The festival starts April 1st and ends on the 30th. There are 88 events happening all over the city. Like The Art Garage Inc. event where kids can get to create their own pop-up books. That sounds like a lot of fun. It saddens me that I'm not still six-years-old and able to take part in something this awesome. But do not despair adults of Toronto! There are many other Festival events for you to attend and participate in.
They have also scattered 99 little books around the city titled Books We Love that can be filled out by anyone who finds them. I think it's an incredibly neat idea. The website also has a map of where you can find them. So happy hunting!
And this April, for the love of all that is holy, please read a book.
