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!
Janet Joy Wilson is senior executive sales director at Penguin Random House Canada, the resident Book Lover at Global TV’s “The Morning Show,” and Co-Founder & Outreach Director of The Reading Line, a series of “book rides” aimed at raising awareness of bike routes in need of infrastructure improvements. She is also co-captain of Cycle Toronto’s Ward 13 advocacy group, and 100in1Day urban intervention leader of Slow Down Jane, an initiative to slow down vehicular traffic on Jane Street. She lives and breathes books and bicycles, and is always looking for new ways to talk about them.
