Since 1990, The Word On The Street has proudly hosted some of the finest talent in Canadian literature. Our next festival is shaping up to be another great one. Check out all of the confirmed authors, performers, and storytellers below!
Jerry Haigh is a Kenya born, Glasgow schooled, wildlife veterinarian who, after ten years working with diverse species that included rhino, elephants and lions in six African countries, joined the faculty at Saskatoon’s Western College of Veterinary Medicine. In this, his fourth book, he tells of his adventures with zoo and wild creatures in Canada. They range from bison to seals, from moose to owls, and as the title suggests, from porcupines to polar bears. Two of his zoo cases involved dental work in a hippo and a lion.
