The Gladstone Hotel will play host to this year’s Small Press Book Fair and it is shaping up to be even bigger than the last. Along with the venue change, our new date makes the event perfect for holiday gift giving–stock up on local press for the holidays!
Talk, buy, peruse, and enjoy books, chapbooks, graphic novels, zines, comics and so much more.
The Fair features an up-close look at some of the city’s most exciting small presses. Small Press of Toronto grew out of the “Meet the Presses” events organized by Stuart Ross and Nick Power back in the ’80s, which was then a once-a-month gathering featuring five or six small and micro presses displaying, selling, and reading from new work. A much larger gathering, the (first) Toronto Small Press Book Fair, became an annual event in 1987, and a biannual event in the fall of 1990.
Today, the Fair happens twice a year, a feast of all things printed, with readings, workshops, and prizes. What’s more, the event is entirely free & open to the public. This year we are pleased to be celebrating our 22nd year with a fair at the fabulous Gladstone Hotel.
