Festival News: Friend an Author at The Word On The Street!


 This year, show your support for Canada’s literary stars and The Word On The Street by friending an author.

For 22 years, The Word On The Street, Toronto’s book and magazine festival, has brought to life a book and magazine lover’s paradise.  Each year, we showcase Canada’s hottest new books & authors, as well as the best Canadian magazines. As a non-profit organization, The Word On The Street relies on the support of our community to continue to bring a free and 100% Canadian literary festival to Toronto.

Friend An Author (previously known as Adopt An Author) is a yearly fundraising campaign, hosted by The Word On The Street Canada in cooperation with The Word On The Street Toronto.  It provides literary lovers like you with a unique way to show your support for both the Festival and our wonderful Canadian authors.

For as little as $100, participants in the Friend An Author program receive: the opportunity to “friend” a Canadian author; a signed copy of the author’s book; name recognition at the beginning of the author’s presentation; a personalized certificate detailing the friendship; a tax receipt for your charitable contribution; and most of all, a unique and memorable way to show support for Canadian literature and Canada’s largest one-day literary festival.

Authors attending the 2012 Festival include Heather Birrell, Steven Heighton, Dennis Lee, Lesley Livingston, Susan Swan, Kevin Sylvester, Andrew Westoll, Nora Young and many more.  Best of all, all of these authors want to be friended. You can friend as many authors as you’d like, and each author can be friended twice.  It makes a great gift for your friends, your family, or yourself.

Please consider donating to The Word On The Street and participating in our Friend an Author program – your support would be much appreciated. To learn more, visit http://www.thewordonthestreet.ca/wots/toronto/friend
