Saturday Snapshots is hosted by West Metro Mommy.
September 2014 - Toronto ON
Word on the Street took place last Sunday. The day dawned dull and rainy. But the sun came out and it was a very warm 22C or 72F, feeling much warmer.
My husband reluctantly decided to come with me, books aren't really his thing. He was, however, very impressed by the end of the day and stated he hadn't realized how much Canadian authors there were!
I haven't gone to WOTS in years and the venue is now at Queen's Park, perfect for this type of festival.
It was huge!!
A beer tent!
Let's just say that many books got added to both our TBR lists. We also bought some.
One of my favourite displays.
Frances Itani - I can't believe I had not heard of her. She sets some of her stories in Deseronto where my BFF grew up. I was so excited I whipped a note to her only to have her say that her mother had gone to Frances' book signing a few weeks ago and had bought the book for gifts.
Gordon Henderson - new to me but I will be reading Man in the Shadows after listening to him.
Andrew Pyper - I loved Lost Girls.
Interesting statistic - Toronto Public Library costs 2 cents of every city dollar and some politicians think that's too much!!
I bought one of the library bags as I borrow from them weekly.
