Word on the Street? Great magazine deals & more

This weekend in 5 cities across Canada, it’s the annual book and magazine festival, Word on the Street, a smorgasbord of workshops, author readings, presentations and a marketplace for great deals on books and magazine subscriptions.

Saturday in Kitchener, and Sunday in Lethbridge, Halifax, Saskatoon and Toronto, all open to the public.

It’s an especially great opportunity to acquaint yourself with many of Canada’s wonderful independent and literary magazines.

In Toronto, for example, you’ll want to check out the booths of great (and National Magazine Award-nominated or -winning) titles such as Canadian Dimension, Canadian Art, The Feathertale Review, Maisonneuve, The New Quarterly, Shameless, Spacing, Taddle Creek, THIS Magazine, Toronto Review of Books, The Walrus, Worn Fashion Journal and more.

And the impressive list of authors on hand includes National Magazine Award-winners Anne Dowsett Johnson, Don Gillmor, David Macfarlane, Shawn Micallef, Katrina Onstad and others.

Come out this weekend and join the fun!
