Since 1990, The Word On The Street has proudly hosted some of the finest talent in Canadian literature. Our 27th festival is shaping up to be one of our best yet. Check out all of the authors, performers, and storytellers below!
Carey Sookocheff was born on a cold January day in Ottawa, Ontario. She has also lived through the chilly seasons of Calgary, Winnipeg and Maple Creek, Saskatchewan. A long-time sufferer of perennially cold feet, she now experiences the “wet cold” winters of Toronto with her husband, two daughters and their dog.
What do you do when you’re missing a shoe? Or your ice cream melts? Or you get caught in the rain? These simple questions have many possible answers. Join a creative girl and her pesky dog as they explore solutions – some practical and some unexpected – to these and other everyday problems.
