The Word On The Street is a free festival that celebrates the written word and champions literacy. For the first time in their 31-year history, the Word On The Street is going virtual with an online festival of storytelling, ideas and imagination.

Over the festival weekend, you’ll have your choice of three simultaneous live streams or “stages”, including plenty of kid-friendly events. Support authors, publishers and local bookstores by shopping the multi-day virtual marketplace. And you can connect with other readers (and the rest of the publishing community!) in the interactive online spaceRegistration is FREE, as always (but they also appreciate donations for those who wish to give).
