Any festival that’s been happening year after year for over 30 years has obviously found the right formula for success. The Festival of the Written Arts has been described as “Canada’s longest running summer gathering of Canadian writers and readers.
This year is the 31st anniversary and another full slate of outstanding Canadian writing talent will be here to talk about their books. If you like reading, then the festival is a great place to hear about new work from your favourite authors, but it’s also a great introduction to others whose names are less familiar and a few about whom you know absolutely nothing.
The Festival takes place over a four-day weekend, August 15-19. You can check out the full program at http://www.writersfestival.ca/ but don’t leave it too long as many of the events often sell out early.
Tickets go on sale by telephone at 8AM on Wednesday, May 29th, and I’ll be ready with my selections previewed and made, and my telephone on speed dial.
