Since 1990, The Word On The Street has proudly hosted some of the finest talent in Canadian literature. Our 29th festival was one of our best yet. Check out all of the authors, performers, and storytellers below!

Joanna Goodman

Originally from Montreal, bestselling author Joanna Goodman now lives in Toronto and is the owner of the Canadian linen company Au Lit Fine Linens. The Home for Unwanted Girls is based in part on the story of her mother.

The Home For Unwanted Girls

Based on true events in 1950s Quebec, The Home for Unwanted Girls tells the moving story of a young unwed mother who is forced to abandon her daughter and the lengths to which they go to find each other.
