As part of our mission to raise awareness of Canadian comic book creators and their works, and as part of our 5th Anniversary festivities, we will be holding the awards on the weekend of September 26-27, 2009. While we are still finalizing the plans for the presentation of the awards and the display of the 2009 Visions artwork, we’ve just received confirmation that we will be setting up in an Exhibitor space at THE WORD ON THE STREET Book & Magazine Festival in TORONTO on Sunday September 27th, 2009 from 11am – 6pm.
On the last Sunday in September, Queen’s Park will transform into a booklover’s paradise with a marketplace of more than 258 book and magazine exhibits, 248 of Canada’s top authors, poets, storytellers and presenters and 198 readings, performances, workshops and other events.
The award-winning Toronto festival delivers a full day of fun for all ages, whether you want to learn how to get published at the Wordshop Marquee, sing along with the crowd at the TVOKids Stage, take in some of Toronto’s best arts entertainment, listen to a favourite author read from their latest book, or just sit under the leafy canopy of Queen’s Park and enjoy a new found treasure. There is always plenty to see and do at Canada’s largest book and magazine festival, and best of all, The Word On The Street and all of its events are FREE!
