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!
Judy Fong Bates is thrilled to be a part of Toronto’s The Word on the Street. Her latest work, The Year of Finding Memory, a family memoir, was a Globe and Mail Best 100 Book for 2010. She lives with her husband on a farm outside of Campbellford. They are both devoted gardeners and enthusiastic hikers.
