The Word on the Street

The 5th Annual Word on the Street Festival is this Sunday, September 20th, starting at 11 am.

The 5th Annual Word on the Street Festival is this Sunday, September 20th, starting at 11 am. "The Word On The Street is a free public festival that celebrates the written word and champions literacy through an annual outdoor book and periodical fair." This free, family-friendly event includes exhibits, food, live readings, and panels on a variety of topics. The festival is held outdoors, in Civic Square around City Hall (across from the Frances Morrison Public Library). The University of Saskatchewan is a proud sponsor of this event. 

This year's featured authors include Chef Michael Smith, Margaret Trudeau, W.P. Kinsella, Wab Kinew, Richard Van Camp, George Littlechild, and many more. Visit the Word on the Street website for a detailed schedule of events. We also have handouts with more information available in the Murray Library.
