Word On The Street Festival
Head over this weekend to The Word On The Street, a festival that celebrates Canadian reading and writing, and champions literacy. It’s the world’s largest outdoor bookstore, with over 200,000 people in attendance. Check out over 200 authors and presenters, attend book readings and literary workshops, and browse the marketplace with over 275 book and magazine exhibitors. It’s got something for book lovers of all ages. And did I mention this is a free event?

You can find a full schedule on the website, but here are some highlights:

Eat Street author James Cunningham (Bestsellers Stage, 12:00)
Actress and author Meg Tilly (Bestesellers Stage, 1:45)

Word On The Street Festival

We are big book lovers in my family – I’m not sure how we missed this huge event in our own city that is now in its 24th year, but we’re going to fix that this Sunday when we head over to Queens Park. If you live in Halifax, Kitchener, Lethbridge, or Saskatoon, check the website for Word On The Street events in your own city.
