Since 1990, The Word On The Street has proudly hosted some of the finest talent in Canadian literature. Our 28th festival was one of our best yet. Check out all of the authors, performers, and storytellers below!
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.
