With 15 programming stages, over 200 authors and presenters, and hundreds of book and magazine vendors in the exhibitor marketplace, it’s a sad fact that it’s just not possible to see it all in person at The Word On The Street Toronto.
But we have great news for those who missed the action at the Amazon.ca Bestsellers Stage on Sunday September 21st. We’re pleased to share with you footage of four of the programming segments that appeared on the stage this year. Sit back and enjoy these fascinating conversations and readings!
Authors Claire Cameron (The Bear), Kathryn Kuitenbrouwer (All the Broken Things), Sean Michaels (Us Conductors), and Shani Mootoo (Moving Forward Sideways Like a Crab) come together for a roundtable discussion of their spring successes, hosted by Chatelaine Books Editor Laurie Grassi.

Hosted by The Globe and Mail‘s arts editor, Jared Bland.
