The Festival of Literary Diversity (FOLD) celebrates Canadian and international authors and features panels, discussions, workshops, and interactive events that allow booklovers, authors and industry professionals from across Canada and around the world to participate in exceptional virtual events and unique in-person experiences. The festival provides an important space for writers from marginalized and underrepresented communities to develop their craft and to discuss the challenges involved in creating stories that ask difficult questions, expose hard truths, and push literary boundaries.

The 2023 festival runs April 30 – May 7, with 30+ virtual events starting April 30 and 12 in-person events taking place in Brampton, Ontario at the city’s beautiful Rose Theatre from May 4 – 7, 2023. Many of the in-person events will also be live-streamed and recorded for virtual passholders.
