For the past 26 years, The Word On The Street has been renowned for the quality and diversity of its event programming. See the lineup of incredible Canadian literary talent at the 27th festival on September 25, 2016.
In Bad Pirate, unlikely buccaneer Augusta Garrick learns that integrity pays off, even when it means running against the pack. In Good Pirate, the sea pup is still under pressure to fit in, this time by abandoning her love for fancy things. After all, says her father the captain, a good pirate must be rotten, sneaky, and brainy. But is there really any reason a fancy pirate can’t be just as ingenious as a rotten one? When the rest of the crew is captured by Captain Fishmonger’s mangy pirate cats, Augusta gets the chance to show just what a well-dressed, sweet-smelling, clever pup can do.
Kari-Lynn Winters is a performer, poet, scholar, and the award-winning author of twenty-six books, including Good Pirate and Bad Pirate. When she isn’t writing, Kari-Lynn is an associate professor at Brock University in Saint Catharines. But she wasn’t always happy in the classroom. In elementary school, Kari-Lynn found writing hard and didn’t always want to do it. Eventually, though, her love of storytelling, theatre, and children’s literature led her to discover that writing really is ARRRRRsome!
Kari-Lynn Winters will be hosting the TD Children’s Literature Tent from 2:20 PM to 5:20 PM.
