Northern Ontario Book Fair returns after 2 year hiatus

The organizers of the Northern Ontario Book Fair are delighted to announce that registration is now open for authors who wish to sell their books this summer.

The Northern Ontario Book Fair is an annual event where Northern Ontario authors come together to learn, network and sell their books. The event is organized by co-founders Jes Trudel and Véronique Ginglo-Robert (previously under the Silverleaf Writers Guild banner).

The first, second and third editions of the Northern Ontario Book Fair were held in Timmins, Sault Ste. Marie and Cobalt respectively from 2017 to 2019. While the event was on hiatus in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event is making a comeback in 2022.

The Northern Ontario Book Fair will take place August 20-21, 2022 in Timmins, Ontario. The book fair portion of the event will take place on Saturday, August 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., while the Sunday event, pending funding, will feature workshops and guest speakers to help writers develop their skills. .

Authors must be born, currently reside, or have spent a significant portion of their life in Northern Ontario to enter, and must have at least one mainstream or self-published book to sell. Although there are no restrictions on the style or genre of the publication – comics, graphic novels and photobooks are welcome – it must be in finished book form.

The cost to register is $49 plus HST and will be open until all available spots have been filled. Interested authors are invited to visit the website for more information or to complete the registration form.

The organizers would like to thank Desjardins/Caisse Alliance and Holiday Inn Express for their generous donations of space to host this event.
