The Word on the Street - Sunday, Sept. 30

Large Marge

Recommended Posts


For those who haven't heard of it, the Word on the Street is the largest literary festival in North America and it takes place this Sunday in Cities across Canada. There are often VERY good deals on books and magazines; and authors on hand to sign new releases. The line up for Toronto is absolutely incredible this year, if you're into this kind of thing. I will be working as a production assistant for the day, so let me know if you're coming and we can slide into the VIP room to schmooze with some of the following authors:
