Word on the Street time again!


toronto-logo-png-optIt’s Word on the Street time again in Toronto. Tomorrow, Sunday Sept. 25, an estimated 200,000 authors and readers will gather at Toronto’s Harborfront Centre for the city’s annual public literary event.

There will be author readings and interviews, contests, and a lot more. And it’s mostly free entertainment, except for book purchases and author cruises on the Tall Ship Kajama. Tickets for the hour-long cruises are $20 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under.

As you browse the booths of authors and their books, please come by and see me. I’ll be at:

  • CRIME WRITERS OF CANADA‘s booth 541 from noon until 1 p.m.
  • THE MESDAMES OF MAYHEM’s booth WB12 from 1-4 p.m. The Mesdames have their own booth for the first time this year, and I’ll be manning it with Catherine Astolfo, Lynne Murphy, Madeleine Harris-Callway, Lisa de Nikolits, Donna Carrick and Sylvia Warsh.
  • And SISTERS IN CRIME’s booth WB11 from 5-6 p.m.

Hope to see you there!

Harbourfront Centre is at 235 Queens Quay West, just steps away from Lake Ontario. If you plan to take public transit, the TTC subway line from Yonge-Bloor to Osgoode station will be closed this weekend. Take the #509 or #510 southbound streetcars from Spadina station.
