If you’ve not been to Word on the Street before, it’s a really fun and worthwhile day: imagine a street festival dedicated entirely to reading, books, magazines and words. And it’s happening not just in Vancouver, but in major cities across the country. It’s just a super event, and I’m very proud to be a part of it. Here’s the official 4-1-1 from the Word on the Street Web site:
Held on the last Sunday of September at Library Square, The Word On The Street Vancouver promotes books and authors with free exhibits, performances and hands-on activities for a wide range of ages and interests.And get this: there are booths and events and panel discussions -- lots to see and do -- and it’s all free!
Each year, Vancouver's The Word On The Street attracts an estimated 35,000 visitors, and hundreds of participating exhibitors, authors, performers and volunteers to Library Square for literary readings, music, contests, panels and much more.
Maybe we’ll see you there.
