Scriptus 2022


Scriptus - Toronto's Pen & Writing show - is back in person this Sunday, Oct. 30th at the Toronto Reference Library from 10-4pm. Completely free and absolutely worth attending if you love pens and paper!

This is a pic from Scriptus 2019 - the last time they had an in-person event. You bet we are excited to be back and we thought the following info would be helpful:

A few tips for the show

  • Come early for the best selection.  The show starts at 10AM but the line to get in starts before that. 
  • Wear layers.  It is cool waiting in line, it is warm in the library with all of those ppl inside
  • Have fun! 


Where will you be located? 

The show takes place at the Toronto Reference Library (789 Yonge Street).

This year we will have 5 tables, our largest showing. We will be at tables 16-20 which are located down the center aisle towards the Stage (North Terrace) in the Bram and Bluma Appel Salon.
