The City of Markham in partnership with the Markham Arts Council was pleased to present the second annual International Festival of Authors (IFOA Markham) Touring Event on Tuesday October 23, 2012, inside the beautiful Flato Markham Theatre.
We were pleased to have with us headlining author and past recipient of the prestigious Scotiabank Giller Prize–Dr. Vincent Lam, along with international world renowned authors: Marjorie Celona, Ayesha Chatterjee and Chan Koonchung. The event was hosted by author and journalist, Bert Archer. The event began with the “Mayor’s Hour: Wine and World Cuisine” reception, hosted by Mayor Frank Scarpitti, in the lobby of Flato Markham Theatre, including a meet-and-greet with the authors, an exciting visual arts exhibit, and performances by award winning YorkSlam performers. Author Readings and Q & A session followed the reception. Relive the 2012 International Festival of Authors Markham through the photo slideshow here! For more photos, see our Facebook page.
