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!
Linda Bailey was born and grew up in Winnipeg. In her twenties, she traveled around the world, mostly by ship, working in England and Australia. Then she moved to Vancouver, where she earned a B.A. and an M.Ed. at the University of British Columbia. She still lives in Vancouver, a five-minute walk from the ocean. She’s an ex-college teacher, an ex-editor, an ex-travel agent and . . . Now she’s the author of more than thirty books for kids. Best known perhaps are her picture books about a dog called Stanley (Stanley’s Party and others, illustrated by Bill Slavin). Many of her books have now travelled around the world — just like her.
