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!
Sandra Perron is a senior partner with A New Dynamic Enterprise Inc, specializing in Organizational Behaviour, Quality Engineering and Lean Manufacturing. She has chaired the Minister’s Advisory Board on Employment Equity and is currently a member of the Board of Governors for the Corps of Commissionnaires in Québec. She is the founder and president of the Imagine… Project.
In her revealing and moving memoir, Sandra Perron, Canada’s first female infantry officer and a member of the Royal 22e Régiment — the legendary “Van Doos” — describes her fight against a system of institutional sexism. Out Standing in the Field is the story of a soldier who refused to let her comrades or her country down, even while serving a military institution that failed her repeatedly.
