TIFF who? September Book Events in Toronto, Canada!

Hi everyone! September is ending on a busy note in the Toronto book community so we thought that we would share some of the upcoming events with you. (All but one are being brought to Toronto by Indigo Books.) We will not be able to attend them all however we will indicate below which ones we will be crashing!

Janet Evanovich - Wicked Appetite signing    

When: Friday September 17, 2010 at 6:00 pm 
Where: Indigo Yorkdale

Wicked Appetite is the first book in Unmentionables series by famed writer Janet Evanovich. This book was just released September 14th so pick one up and if you're in Toronto head out to the signing on Friday.
Sophie Kinsella - Mini Shopaholic signing                                          

When: Friday September 24, 2010 at 7:00 pm
Where: Indigo Manulife Centre

This book was our Waiting on Wednesday last week. The series is loved by many shopaholics worldwide and I have no doubt that this book will be as cherished. This book will be released Tuesday September 21st, 2010 which is just in time for the signing on the Friday of that week. It would be lovely if we could attend this even but it falls on a busy weekend.

Becca Fitzpatrick - Hush, Hush signing
When: Saturday September 25th, 2010 at 12:00 pm
Where: Indigo Yonge and Eglinton

Becca Fitzpatrick will be in Toronto the weekend of the 25th to attend Indigo's Teen Read Awards, so why not have a signing too? Crescendo won't be out until Tuesday October 19th but all you Patch lovers can get her to sign your copy of Hush, Hush. Why must this event be so close to Smart Chicks? We can't attend. :(

Smart Chicks Kick It! Tour

When: Saturday September 25th, 2010 at 2:00 pm
Where: Chapters Brampton (52 Quarry Edge Drive, Brampton, ON)
Who: Alyson Noel, Kelley Armstrong, Melissa Marr, Melissa de la Cruz, Jeri Smith-Ready, Jennifer Lynn Barnes, Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

What's better than having a ton of awesome YA authors in one place? Having A&C there getting books signed for our contest winners! 

Teen Read Awards - hosted by Jessi Cruickshank and Dan Levy

When: Saturday September 25th, 2010 at 7:00 pm (red carpet at 6pm)
Where: Six Degrees, 2335 Yonge St., Toronto, ON

Teens have been voting for months for the best of the best in the YA world. We are too old to attend but Liz from MidnightBloom will be there and she will be guest blogging for us after the event! Thanks Liz!

Word on the Street 

When: Sunday September 26th, 2010 11am-6pm
Where: Queen's Park, Toronto, ON

The Word on the Street festival is a national event held in multiple provinces in Canada. The festival combines author events, workshops and throws in a huge marketplace with tons of publishers. This free event aims at promoting literacy and the written word in Canada. Ashley will not be able to attend this event (stupid work!) but I will be attending with my sister, Stephanie, who runs http://idlemind-stephanie.blogspot.com/ .  

Alexandra Adornetto- Halo signing

When: Monday September 27th, 2010 at 7:00 pm
Where: Indigo Yorkdale

 Join the young and ultra-fabulous Alexandra Adornetto as she signs the first book in her YA series, Halo. It would be really awesome if we could attend this event but as of yet we are not sure. If you make it out to Indigo Yorkdale tweet us about it @bookjunkies!

That's all folks! If you like this events blog leave a comment below and we'll be sure to make it a regular occurrence!

Much love!

-A & C


  1. Wow so many good events in TO. I will be at the Smart Chicks Kick It! :) I didn't know about some of the others though... too bad I'm not driving up until Saturday morning or I would try the Friday night signings too.

    And YAY for guest blog by midnightblooms!

  2. Wow, such great events in Toronto, I want them to come closer to me! I adore Janet Evanovich and I would travel a great distance to go to the Smart Chicks tour, that sounds like a blast:)

  3. So many events/signings in the TO area this month! I wish the Becca Fitzpatrick signing and the Smart Chicks Tour weren't so close in timing though b/c it would have been nice to go to both. As it stands now, I think I have time to make it to one of the two before I head to the TRA's later. *hopefully*

    lol, I can't wait to share the details and pics during my guest spot, and to see you're own post later for Smart Chicks!! :)

  4. This is awesome! You should do it more often, I never know when the events are!

  5. I wasn't sure before but now I know. I AM GOING TO THE SMART CHICKS TOUR THIS SATURDAY TOO!! I'M EXCITED!! ^_^


We love comments almost as much as the smell of new books! :)
