Toronto Comic Arts Festival
Returning for the third time to Toronto Reference Library and for its 8th year overall, The Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF) will burst onto Toronto’s literary and comic scenes again this May with its biggest and best show yet. With over 250 cartoonists from around the world expected to exhibit, the broadest and most exciting range of comics and graphic novels being published today will be on display in one of the foremost events of its type in North America this May 7 and 8, 2011.
Headline guest Chester Brown is one of Canada’s most famous authors and his large body of work including The Little Man, I Never Liked You, The Playboy, Ed The Happy Clown, the seminal underground comics series’ Yummy Fur and Underwater and the best-selling ‘comic strip memoir’ Louis Riel are renowned worldwide. That impressive body of work will be joined in 2011 by Chester’s brand new graphic novel Paying For It, which makes its international debut at TCAF. An exploration of sexual mores and personal politics many years in the making, Paying For It will be one of the most talked-about Canadian books of 2011, and Chester will be launching the book, discussing it in readings and panel discussions, and signing copies for fans over the course of the Festival.
