The Toronto International Festival of Authors (TIFA) continues at Harbourfront Centre this week. This year’s Festival invites children and youth of all ages to TIFA Kids, with a vibrant programme the entire family can enjoy for free!
Here I highlight a couple of events along with the authors and artists bringing us superheroes, graphic novels, whimsical adventures and spooky stories. At TIFA Kids you can also enjoy arts & crafts, sing-alongs and baking activities. There are plenty of fun activities for all age groups.
