Sunday, September 27, 2009 was the Word on the Street‘s 20th year! The weather held up and the festival was quite the success! Here are a few of our photos from the day:
Laura Beingessner and Joanne Schwartz reading from Our Corner Grocery Store at the Children’s Reading Tent. After, Laura drew a broccoli for the kids!
Cary Fagan reading from Jacob Two-Two on the High Seas. (You can see Laura Beingessner’s broccoli drawing on the left!)
From Jacob Two-Two on the High Seas, Cary Fagan teaches the audience the chorus of the Pirate Song: “It’s the pirate life for us, hey ho! The pirate life for us! Aaarrrgh!”
2:00pm at the Comics and Graphic Novels Tent was Graphic Memoirs: Three New Works. Tundra’s Lesley Fairfield (Tyranny) presented with Canadian graphic memoirists, Tory Woolcott (Mirror Mind) and Adam Bourret (I’m Crazy). Thank you to Christopher Butcher and Peter Birkemoe from The Beguiling for organizing this program.
Tim Beiser read from Bradley McGogg The Very Fine Frog at the Children’s Reading Tent.
In the Word On The Street in Kitchener, Shane Peacock and Marla Stewart Konrad read from their latest books!
Thank you to the Word on the Street team and all the volunteers! We look forward to the next festival on Sunday, September 26, 2010.
