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!
Chantal Hébert, Toronto Star political columnist, cut her teeth in politics at Queen’s Park in the late seventies covering the minority governments of Premier William Davis. Since then she has reported in French and in English on Canada’s constitutional and referendum wars, the 1988 free-trade debate, as well as the ups and downs of federal politics over the last 35 years. In addition to her columns, Chantal is a regular member of the CBC’s At Issue panel, broadcast weekly on The National. Her second book, The Morning After, dealing with the 1995 referendum, was published in 2014.
