The Toronto Comic Arts Festival has released its second psoter, this one by Isabelle Arsenault while also announcing a line-up of kids programming. Partticipating creators include Arsenault, Fanny Britt, Kazu Kibuishi, Jimmy Gownley, Ben Hatke, Darren Rawlings, Jason Caffoe, Raina Telgemeier, Dave Roman, and more to come.
TCAF will present two full days of kids-oriented programming at Toronto Reference Library’s Beeton Auditorium, located on the main floor of the library. This will provide greater accessibility and a slightly larger on-site space for two full days of interactive presentations from top international authors!
In addition, TCAF will also feature a one-day off-site event for large-format programming aimed at young readers, TCAF Kids Day 2014! TCAF Kids Day 2014 will take place at St. Paul’s on Bloor, 227 Bloor St. E., on Saturday May 10th from 10am-5pm. St. Paul’s on Bloor is just 10 minutes’ walk from Toronto Reference Library, and 5 minutes’ walk from official hotel The Marriott Bloor Yorkville. TCAF Kids Day will feature young-reader oriented author presentations for audiences up to 200, as well as large author signings, interactive activities, and more! TCAF’s first Kids Day was in 2012 at St Paul’s on Bloor, and was visited by more than 1000 attendees!
