This May 8th, 2011 I volunteered with the Toronto Comic Arts Festival at the Toronto Reference Library. Some basic details about the event:
- Website: TorontoComics.com
- March 29th 2003 was the first TCAF. This year was the 7th, I believe. Don’t quote me on it!
- Dates this year: Saturday May 7th, 9am-5pm, Sunday May 8th, 11am-5pm
- Sponsored by The Beguiling , Toronto Reference Library among many other Sponsors
It was a great experience and I’ll go about why shortly, but I think first I need to discuss the ‘Why’.
Since my first internship at Random House of Canada I’ve been in love with publishing. I’ve always loved books and I’m an aspiring writer. But what I quickly found was a love and appreciation for graphic fiction. Comics, graphic novels, etc. You’ve probably read the spiel on a earlier post.
