Sunday, September 26 2004 is the 15th Anniversary of the Word on the Street, Canada’s pre-eminent book and magazine festival. This year there’s a new location in Toronto to note: QUEEN’S PARK, from Bloor to Wellesley. This Magazine staff, volunteers and writers will be there to hawk our wares all day, including subscriptions, back issues and limited edition chachkas (your fridge is just crying out for a This Magazine magnet). Our booth is on the east side of Queen’s Park, on the street, just south of St Joseph. Come by and say hello.
While you’re there, you can check out readings by This Magazine celebs:
Stuart Ross reads new poetry between 1245 and 1:00
Ania Szado reads from The Beginning of Was, 12:30 pm
Elyse Friedman reads from Waking Beauty, 2:30 pm
Andrew Potter and Joseph Heath read from The Rebel Sell, 3:30 pm
Hal Niedzviecki reads from Hello, I’m Special, 4:30 pm
Joyce Byrne is part of a panel discussing “Canada’s Thinking Person’s Magazines” 4-5:00 pm
Congratulations to all present and former This contributors who have books released this fall.
More info is available at the WOTS website, and the Saturday Star will contain a full program. Hope to see you there!
