The Toronto International Festival of Authors (TIFA) returned to the Toronto Harbourfront this year, held September 21–October 1. The festival offered more than 200 events featuring a wide range of local and international authors, including such Canadian prize winners as Michelle Good, Casey Plett, Sarah Polley, and Patrick deWitt, and such international guests as Bill Buford, Anne Enright, Richard Ford, and Makoto Yukimura.

An international invitation program for publishing professionals also brought a dozen editors to Toronto to meet with publishers and visit publishing houses. Among the guests were Luke Brown, editorial director of Serpent's Tail in the U.K., and Esther Hendricks, editor of De Arbeiderspers in Amsterdam.

The festival has run for more than 40 years, and offers several additional events year-round, including Toronto Lit Up, a series of book launches celebrating new and emerging writers in the city; the MOTIVE Crime & Mystery Festival, launched in 2022, and held every June; TIFA Kids literary events; and a TIFA Book Club.
