The Word On The Street in Conversation with Great Canadian Authors

September 18, 2014

Coinciding with the festival’s 25th anniversary this Sunday, September 21st, The Word On the Street presents a series of pre-festival interviews with bestselling authors. Enjoy their reflections on 25 amazing years of celebrating reading!

We sat down with The Troop author Craig Davidson, aka Nick Cutter, to discuss his inspirations, approach to storytelling, and the new projects he has in the works. The Troop is one of the books featured in the Sculpting New Reads program.

We’re pleased to welcome Stranglehold author Robert Rotenberg to the Bestsellers Stage at 3:00 PM. In this video Rotenberg discusses the insight his law experience brings to his work, and the valuable role writers of fiction play in capturing places in time.

“Story is a grand lie we tell about what living on the planet is.” Kathryn Kuitenbrouwer discusses breaching the contract with realism in her writing. Kuitenbrouwer will be appearing at both the Bestsellers Stage at 12:00 PM, and the Wordshop Marquee at 2:00 PM.

Stay tuned for more fascinating author interviews this week!
