The Word on the Street Toronto 2018 - Book Signing


Promote your work by signing copies of your book for eager attendees during this year’s The Word on the Street Festival, hosted at the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto on Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018.

This festival has brought booklovers together to celebrate the written word for 28 years, and last year alone, crowds of more than 180,000 gathered at the event.

The Word on the Street is free to the public and boasts a full programming schedule. The popular TD KidStreet celebrates Canada’s vibrant children’s publishing industry and offers programming specifically geared to children under 12.

We expect heavy traffic at the book signing booths. You’ll have the chance to connect face-to-face with readers of all ages and experience meaningful interactions.
