Support Canada’s Literary Talent: Friend An Author!

August 22, 2016

Friend An Author is a yearly fundraising campaign, hosted by The Word On The Street Canada in cooperation with The Word On The Street Toronto. It provides literary lovers like you with a unique way to show your support for both the festival and our wonderful Canadian authors.


As a non-profit organization, The Word On The Street relies on the support of our community to continue to bring a free and 100% Canadian literary festival to Toronto. Leading up to the big day, there’s another great way to get involved and support the festival!


For $100, participants in the Friend An Author program receive:

  • The chance to “friend” an author of your choice from the list of available authors
  • A copy of the book with the opportunity to have it signed by the author at the festival after their reading!
  • Recognition for your contribution at the festival. Your name will be announced on stage by the host prior to your author’s reading
  • Recognition in the 2017 Official Festival Program
  • A tax receipt for your charitable contribution

A unique and memorable way to show support for Canadian literature and Canada’s largest one-day literary festival!
