Though it’s only one day long, the Word on the Street Festival packs in the special guests and artfully highlights local talent. Ending with the East Coast Literary Awards, this is an unofficial literary week in Halifax. Our powerful poet laureate El Jones releases her debut book Thursday night, and reads at WOTS on Sunday. Tents filled with moving, entertaining and thoughtful authors—like Vincent Lam, Natalie Meisner, Sylvia D. Hamilton, One Book Nova Scotia’s featured author Ali Bryan and LaineyGossip’s Elaine Lui—books for sale by the dozen and a chance to see hopefuls pitching the book they’ve always had in them at the annual Pitch the Publisher event make this week better read than dead.
