Harbourfront Centre, Toronto

Presented by the Book and Periodical Council
and Humber College in association with the Toronto International Festival of Authors.
Book Summit is taking place in conjunction
with the Canadian Writers’ Summit.


What we thought of as disruptive technologies are now the norm in publishing. But have we adapted beyond technology to explore and celebrate all the potential in change? Disrupt Your Publishing Game offers the opportunity to spend a day thinking about being bold: learning about new imprints, publishing models, marketing experiments. As we reach out directly to our readers, we will also consider what they want to read, how they want to access their reading, and how storytelling continues to be an urgent, disruptive, fulfilling activity.

Book Summit 18 would like to acknowledge the sacred land on which it takes place. It has been a site of human activity for 15,000 years. This land is the territory of the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. The territory was the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and Confederacy of the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. Today, the meeting place of Toronto is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to gather in this community, on this territory.
