Registration guide ABOUT THE TORONTO URBAN BOOK EXPO

Kya Publishing’s Toronto Urban Book Expo (TUBE) will be held on Friday, August 3, 2018 at the Toronto Public Library’s Parkdale Branch (4100 Queen Street West) from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. The only Canadian event dedicated to celebrating urban fiction, it is an annual exposition of contemporary urban writers where authors and publishers display, sell, and communicate their projects. At TUBE you can enjoy readings, workshops, a special children’s area, and meet your favourite urban writers. Admission is free to the public.

ABOUT KYA PUBLISHING

Kya Publishing is Canada’s only urban fiction publisher, dedicated to the development of contemporary Canadian urban fiction and culture through books, research, events, and community initiatives. Learn more about us at www.kyapublishing.com.

PARTICIPANTS

TUBE highlights Canadian Urban, African-American, and Caribbean fiction, multicultural literature, motivational texts, and diverse children’s literature. The event also features publishers and distributors of urban fiction, and guests from literary and urban cultural communities. Over the past four years, we have hosted almost 70 authors in Toronto, including almost 40% of our participants joining us from Buffalo, Houston, Baltimore, Seattle, Cleveland, and across the U.S.

PROCEEDS

Partial proceeds from this event will support Kya Publishing’s Kya Keys Book Donation Program; an annual donation is also made to a local literacy organization, with contributions from event attendees. We have donated to the Rita Cox fund at the Toronto Public Library Foundation (towards their Black and Caribbean Heritage Collection), as well as the Maica Impact organization (in support of Jamaican education and literacy) over the years.
