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.

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

On 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 at 13 performance venues.

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’ll be at the Kitchener Word on the Street, doing a panel on blogging.

    Oh that’s excellent, congradulations!
    I will really miss going to the Word On The Street this year – I would always go when I was still in Vancouver. But I will go again (when I’m back in the city that is, whichever city that may be!).

    _Having perused the Toronto location’s exhibitor listings in the Star this morning, I know who’s NOT appearing this year.

    Sounds cool! Hope it’s a great time! Kate and I are going to Word on the Street in Vancouver today, so clearly we’ll be with you in spirit!
