Since 1989, The Word On The Street has proudly hosted some of the finest talent in Canadian literature. Our 30th anniversary festival will be our best yet! Stay tuned for announcements on our featured authors, performers, and storytellers.

Sharon & Bram

Sharon Hampson, the late Lois Lillienstein (d. 2015) and Bram Morrison are some of Canada’s most famous children’s performers. The trio, known simply as Sharon, Lois and Bram, formed in Toronto in 1978 and went on to create two children’s television shows, most notably The Elephant Show, and to release 21 full-length albums. Though Lois died in 2015, Sharon and Bram have worked with Sharon’s daughter Randi and illustrator Qin Leng to turn their famous song “Skinnamarink” into a picture book.

Sharon, Lois & Bram's Skinnamarink

Based on the classic folk song made famous by a beloved trio of children’s entertainers, this picture book is best sung aloud! “Skinnamarink” is a timeless anthem of love and inclusion. Through Qin Leng’s wonderfully imaginative illustrations, this delightful picture book tells the story of a community coming together. Young and old, from little mice to a big elephant, people and animals gather into a spontaneous parade as they follow the sound of music.
