International Festival of Authors Returning to the Woodland Cultural Centre

Posted 14/09/12 in EVENTS

The 35th International Festival of Authors hits the road for its annual touring program and makes a stop at the Woodland Cultural Centre once again.  Join us the evening of October 30th, 2014 at 7:00 PM at the museum of the Woodland Cultural Centre to hear readings from acclaimed authors Tony Birch, Ellen an Neerven, Lee Maracle, and Thomas King

Geoffrey E. Taylor, Director of the IFOA, says, "IFOA Ontario events are an amazing opportunity, not only for audiences to meet the authors in person and to hear them read and discuss their books, but also for the writers to explore the beautiful province of Ontario.  We are thrilled to bring over 20 outstanding Canadian and international authors to 12 communities."

Tony Birch and Ellen van Neervan are celebrated Australian Aboriginal writers; while Lee Maracle is a critically acclaimed fiction writer.  Thomas King is winner of the RBC Taylor Prize and brings at great deal of First Nations humour to his works on serious Indigenous issues.

The International Festival of Authors comes to the Woodland Cultural Centre through a partnership with Harbourfront Centre's Planet IndigenUS.  For additional information on the authors and the IFOA visit

This is a free event with seating limited to the first 100 people to arrive.  Donations will be accepted at the door.
