The Word On The Street Toronto is bringing the festival to your own backyard. In this inaugural community pop-up event, we’re hosting a mini-WOTS at an internationally-renowned hub of sustainability: Evergreen Brick Works! An abandoned brick-making factory nestled in Toronto’s lush ravines, Evergreen Brick Works was transformed into a community hub for all to enjoy.

Enjoy author-led forest walks, a book-filled vendor marketplace, activities for the whole family, Soapbox Science, a featured discussion with environmentalist Maude Barlow, and readings by the finalists for the City of Toronto’s 2022 Toronto Book Awards.

Our community marketplace will include 30+ exhibitors including long-time WOTS favourites such as Annick Press, House of Anansi and Groundwood Books, Brick Books, Coach House Books, ECW Press, Invisible Publishing, Literary Press Group, Stelliform Press, Second Story Press, Wolsak & Wynn, and more. You can also meet some of Toronto’s newest literary shops: Little Ghosts Bookstore, Happily Ever After Books, and Issues Magazine Shop.

Free admission! Donations to support The Word On The Street’s mission to champion literacy are welcome.
