Who’s Going To Word On The Street?

I am!

I've just been invited to join in the Word On The Street's 
Blogging Toronto Discussion Panel with Matt Blankett at 12:30 in the
Wordshop Marquee.  Don't know where that is?  Me either, but it looks
like it's in the North East quadrant of Queen's Park.

If you've never been to The Word On The Street, it's a great event.

"…celebrate the joy of reading at The Word On The Street Book & Magazine Fair. From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the last Sunday in September, Vancouver, Calgary, Kitchener, Toronto and Halifax will unite Canada in a national celebration of literacy and the printed word.

largest, annual outdoor book and magazine festival – The Word On The
Street Toronto – is your ticket to family fun this fall.

Sunday, September 24, 2006, from 11:00a.m. to 6:00p.m., Queen’s Park
will transform into a literary theme park for the 17th annual The Word
On The Street. Whether you’re an avid reader or just a beginner, there
is something for everyone to enjoy at The Word On The Street!

Visitors can browse the more than 250 book, magazine and literacy
exhibitor booths in the festival marketplace or check-out any of 150
authors, poets, storytellers, performers and industry experts featured

There will be plenty to see and do at
this year's festival, and best of all, The Word On The Street and all
of its events are FREE!"

Note: if you've missed the last couple of years, it's not on Queen Street anymore.  It's now held in Queen's Park.

    I would so go (I went last year and loved it) but between being sick as a dog, and planning for next week, I can’t.
