It's Festival Time

It's that time of the year--cool nights, fall colors and book festivals! Sunday, September 28 is when cities across Canada will be holding their annual The Word On The Street Book and Magazine Festival this year. Authors, readings, arts and musical performances--and lots of fabulous books will be the order of the day as people flock to hear and see the best that Canadian publishers have to offer.

For those living in Toronto, we hope that you'll come by and visit the Annick booth (#347 on Kidstreet). And make sure to catch two of our most popular authors, Kathy Stinson and Loris Lesynski.

Loris will read from her latest book, Shoe Shakes, at the Children's Reading Tent at 2:00, and will be signing books at the Author Signing Tent at 2:30 and at the Annick booth at 3:30.

Kathy will read from A Pocket Can Have a Treasure in It and from her classic Red is Best at the Children's Reading Tent at 1:30 and the Little Readers' Tent at 4:00. Come and have your books signed at the Author Signing Tent at 2:00 and at the Annick Booth at 2:30.

And if you're planning to attend the Kitchener Word On The Street, you're in for a treat as Ruth Ohi reads from her new book, Chicken, Pig, Cow at 11:30 at the 96.7 CHYM Children's Reading Tent.
For those of you who will be at The Word On The Street in Vancouver, make sure to visit the Canada Writes tent at 11:20 to hear author Laura Trunkey read from her just-published junior novel, The Incredibly Ordinary Danny Chandelier.
And what would a festival be without a few show specials at the Annick booth?
• Buy any 3 books and get 2 free hardcover picture books (for younger kids), or 2 free paperbacks (fiction & non-fiction assortment, for older kids)
• Surprise bags $5 each (cash only)

The Word On The Street is celebrating it's 19th year, and is expecting over 300,000 people across Canada; can't wait to see you there!
