Celebrate the stories that connect us at The Word On The Street's inaugural Community Pop-Up event on September 25th, featuring Maude Barlow

About this event

The Word On The Street Toronto is bringing the festival to your own backyard. In this inaugural community pop-up event, we're hosting a mini-WOTS at an internationally-renowned hub of sustainability: Evergreen Brick Works! An abandoned brickmaking factory nestled in Toronto's lush ravines, Evergreen Brick Works was transformed into a community hub for all to enjoy.

Enjoy author-led forest walks, a marketplace for books, activities for the whole family, and a featured reading & discussion with notable environmentalist Maude Barlow for her latest book, Still Hopeful: Lessons from a Lifetime of Activism.

Exhibitors will include long-time WOTS favourites such as Coach House Books, Stelliform Press, Brick Books, Invisible Publishing, Wolsak & Wynn, Second Story Press, Literary Press Group and more. You can also meet some of Toronto's newest literary shops: Little Ghosts Bookstore, Happily Ever After Books, and Issues Magazine Shop.

Official program will be announced in September.

Free admission! Donations to support The Word On The Street's mission to champion literacy are welcome.
