The Word On The Street champions reading and writing in Canada all year long. Since 1990, we’ve brought hundreds of thousands of book lovers together in celebration of Canadian and Indigenous writers at our annual festival. And we have exciting plans to do more to champion storytelling, ideas, and imagination. But we can’t do it without your support.
