It will be a weekend of books, magazines, story-telling, and “literary mayhem” when the 18th annual Word on the Street Festival comes to the Vancouver later this month.
The three-day festival starts on Friday, September 28, 2012 at Banyan Books & Sound and at Historic Joy Kogawa House. On Saturday there are events at the Central Branch (Library Square) and the Carnegie Branch (on Main and Hastings). Sunday, September 30, 2012 will take the festivities to the streets around the Central Branch downtown (click here for Sunday’s site map).
Exhibitors, tents and booths will be setup around the Library Square Marketplace for the weekend as well as along Homer Street, Hamilton Street and inside the Library. There’s also event space downstairs for The Word Under the Street. There will be activities and entertainment for every age group and level of reader. Check out the Family Literacy Tent and Kids Tent for the young ones, meet writers at the Authors Tent, and enjoy Visual Exhibits.
