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!
Piya Chattopadhyay is the host of CBC Radio’s Out in the Open, an adventurous and wide-ranging weekly exploration of how one timely topic is affecting regular people. Piya has been a long-time fixture in Canadian broadcasting, often described as a “swiss army knife” for her versatility in hosting numerous radio and TV programs, including The Current (CBC), Q (CBC), and The Agenda (TVO). In her off-air life, Chattopadhyay has three young children and is married to fellow CBC journalist Peter Armstrong.
Piya Chattopadhyay will be hosting the Amazon.ca Bestsellers Stage from 11:15 AM to 12:45 PM.
