KYA PUBLISHING

Kya Publishing is Canada’s only urban fiction publisher, dedicated to the development of contemporary Canadian urban fiction and culture through books, research, events, and community initiatives.



THE TORONTO URBAN BOOK EXPO

Kya Publishing’s Toronto Urban Book Expo (TUBE) is an annual book fair featuring published and independent writers who sell and communicate their projects while promoting urban literacy and culture.



FEATURED WRITERS

TUBE highlights urban writers selling Canadian and African-American Urban Fiction, Multicultural Literature, Inspirational Texts, Poetry, and Diverse Children’s Books. A current list of participating authors is available via the Kya Publishing News link at kyapublishing.com



SUPPORTING

Partial proceeds from this event will support Kya Publishing’s Kya Keys Book Donation Program; an annual donation is also made to a local literacy organization, with contributions from event attendees.



WHY THE TORONTO URBAN BOOK EXPO IS A NECESSARY EVENT

¨ Local urban authors need an accessible venue and support system to share their writing and sell their books

¨ African-American authors attend this event to connect with Canada’s diverse reading communities

¨ The independent urban fiction industry is a thriving enterprise in most major urban cities in North America

¨ To encourage young readers: Toronto’s urban stories are important for self-reflection and awareness

¨ Urban fiction is under represented in the Canadian literary landscape

¨ We love literature, and we love to celebrate the love of reading with our city...with an urban vibe!
