This past weekend we had the pleasure of attending Word on the Street, an outdoor, one-day-only event celebrating literacy and the written word. WOTS is held annually in Toronto and four other Canadian cities.
More than a book fair, Word on the Street is an opportunity to be surrounded by Canadians who love to read, to get together with fellow readers, writers and teachers, and to discover great new (or new to you) books and magazines. Word on the Street is the largest festival of its kind-- and it's free!
Lin has attended WOTS since 2 years after its inception (which was in 1990), and I've tagged along since I could walk. It's one of our favourite events, and one every reader should attend at least once.
