Quirk Books @ the Word On The Street Festival

Posted by Eric Smith

This Saturday, Quirk Books is participating in Word On The Street, a book festival going down in Toronto. It's an annual event chock full of great publishers and booksellers, author meet & greets, and of course, plenty of books to purchase. While we won't actually be there in person (I wish!), our books sure will.

At the festival, you'll be able to pick up copies of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, Night of the Living Trekkies, the Meowmorphosis, Bedbugs and all three novels in the Pride & Prejudice & Zombies trilogy. You can spot us at Booth #201 & #202.

In addition to the publishers and authors showcasing their works and the epic marketplace of books, there are a number of fabulous events going on at the festival. A scavenger hunt, cooking demonstrations by some of Canada's top chefs, a cartooning workshop for kids, and our good friends at Random House CA are showcasing some new authors in their Remarkable Reads tent. And that's just to name a few! For the full list, visit their official website.

This bookish celebration runs from 11am to 6pm and is rain or shine. Cross your fingers for a sunny day!
