TORONTO, ONT (June 2017) - Toronto-based independent publishing company Kya Publishing will be hosting their 4th annual Toronto Urban Book Expo (TUBE) on Sunday, August 6, 2017 at the Toronto Centre for the Arts’ Studio Theatre, as a part of the Nia Centre for the Arts’ Blowout Festival. The book fair, previously held in association with the Toronto Public Library, will feature published and independent urban writers and their books at a free and family-friendly event, to the soundtrack of a live DJ (Toronto’s DJ Majesty).
Kya Publishing is committed to the documentation of urban culture, and the celebration of literature through their books, research (Journal of Canadian Urban Fiction), events, and community initiatives (Kya Keys Book Donation Program). The annual TUBE was established to provide urban authors with exposure, and networking opportunities—particularly independent/self-published writers. Approximately 40 writers will have vendor booths to sell their projects and distribute marketing materials to attendees at Canada’s only event dedicated exclusively to the promotion of urban literature.
For an updated listing of participating authors, please visit the News section of www.kyapublishing.com.
Attendees who purchase a book at the event will be automatically entered into a draw for one of 3 prizes:
¨ A pair of tickets to see hip hop artist Kendrick Lamar at the Air Canada Centre on August 28, 2017
¨ A new Kobo Aura e-reader
¨ A $50 Chapters/Indigo gift card
“Kya Publishing welcomes registration requests from all writers—both local and international authors—to present with us in the city. We are excited to celebrate urban literature and culture during Toronto’s holiday weekend, during Canada’s 150th year.”
