Toronto, Ontario, Canada Toronto, Ontario, Canada

  • About the event

    Get Lit is a not-for-profit organization that hosts an annual literary event in Toronto. Each year we raise funds for First Book Canada, an organization that puts new books into the hands of children who need them most. Get Lit’s annual literary event is an evening of surprises, fun, and heartfelt stories! 

    Our exceptional speakers share passages from their favourite literary works and explain how the work inspired them, altered their perspective, or impacted their lives. It is an incredible evening spent mingling and sharing stories. The best part? We help First Book Canada deliver over 100,000 books each year.

    Why should you sponsor?

    As a sponsor, Get Lit provides a unique opportunity to reach Toronto’s engaged, influential, and stylish leaders. More than 400 attendees return year after year to; enjoy good food, fine wine, and, most importantly, a love for reading. With a wide variety of options to engage with this selective group, Get Lit is an event not to be missed.

    Get Lit was founded Romina Tina Fontana in 2005. Inspired by Canadian poet Al Purdy’s famously intense and comic public readings, Romina decided to create a unique fundraising event and invite eminent Canadians to read from their favourite piece of writing.

    Over the past fifteen years Romina has embarked on numerous creative projects including two collections of poetry, the Québec premiere production of Morris Panych’s play Lawrence & Holloman, and co-producing a short film based on Al Purdy’s poem “At the Quinte Hotel” in 2002 starring Gord Downie. The film was featured at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival. She was also a Co-Founder of Film North – The Huntsville International Film Festival.
