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.
Born in Montreal, Lilian Nattel now lives in Toronto with her husband and two daughters. She is the author of The River Midnight, The Singing Fire and Web of Angels.
Lily Litvyak is no one’s idea of a fighter pilot: a tiny, dimpled teenager with golden curls who lied about her age in order to fly. But in the crucible of the air war against the German invaders, she becomes that rare thing–a flying ace, glorified at home and around the world as the White Lily of Stalingrad.
Girl at the Edge of Sky is a masterwork of the imagination, subtle and bold all at once, bringing us deep into the precarious life of a remarkable woman who lies to fight for the country that would disown her, and then lies to survive the enemy that would annihilate her. (Random House Canada)
