Book Summit

The Book Summit is an annual day-long professional development conference held in June. The Summit presents a keynote speaker and hosts panel discussions and labs that focus on current industry issues.

In light of the evolving COVID-19 health crisis, we will be hosting Book Summit 21 virtually, in partnership with the Toronto International Festival of Authors on June 17, 2021.

2020 was a year that shook the world, challenging the way we work, how we reach customers, and publishers’, booksellers’, and libraries’ roles in the community. What should we take from the year’s upheavals, and how can we adapt and be more resilient going forward? How can we support staff and boost job satisfaction? How can we create community and engagement online? How can publishing further social and environmental justice? The 19th edition of Book Summit looks to how we can look after the triple bottom line and foster a thriving, sustainable industry.
