This past weekend, the Porcupine’s Quill was pleased to have a table at Word on the Street Toronto—that fantastic annual book fair that takes over Harbourfront Centre the last Sunday of September. We positively melted in the scorching heat, but it didn’t stop us from having a grand old time visiting with friends and fans in the big city. Thanks to all who stopped by and checked out our books—and maybe even purchased a few gems to take home!
If you weren’t able to make it, not to worry. We’ve got some photos to keep you in the loop. Many thanks as always to Don McLeod for providing some of these great snaps.
And a wonderful time was had by all! Good times and great company made this year’s event a whole lot of fun–despite the excessive heat! Hope you enjoyed this little peek at this year’s festival.
At the start of this year’s Word on the Street there was a ribbon-cutting for the Toronto Book Garden honouring the winners of the Toronto Book Award since 1974. Their names are on plaques embedded in the flagstones and among them is the 1999 winner, PQL’s very own Richard Outram, for his poetry collection Benedict Abroad. https://web.toronto.ca/city-government/awards-tributes/awards/toronto-book-awards/toronto-book-garden/
