Grab a pen and paper and write this down: Wordstock Sudbury Literary Festival will turn the page to its third edition this Nov. 3-5.
Previously a bi-annual festival, Wordstock Sudbury will be transitioning into an annual event, landing on the first weekend of November each year starting in 2016.
What began as a special project by the Sudbury Arts Council in 2013 has quickly flourished into an anticipated Northeastern Ontario literary event by both readers and writers alike.
“Nothing says fall like a festival — the leaves are changing, and so is Wordstock Sudbury,” said Dinah Laprairie, Chair, Wordstock Sudbury Literary Festival Board of Directors.
“With a new board of directors at the head of this exciting literary festival, change is expected, and the results will be extraordinary.”
Last year, Wordstock Sudbury brought notable Canadian arts icons author Terry Fallis and comedian Sandra Shamas to town.
Heather Campbell, Wordstock Sudbury’s newly appointed festival director, anticipates locking down this year’s headliners later this spring.
Keep watching, but more importantly, keep reading.
