Once again we are assembling an eclectic and diversified group of critically acclaimed authors and literary prize winners representing a range of literary genres from literary fiction, poetry and non-fiction to memoirs and thrillers. With adult, teen and children’s programming, the festival will offer entertaining and thought-provoking programming for all ages. The Festival will also feature The Guelph Poetry Slam Team delivering their high energy performances.

You will want to ensure that September 9 and 10, 2017 are marked in your literary calendars. Programming for Saturday, September 9 will be announced shortly. Authors reading on Sunday 10, Festival Sunday, are being confirmed and will be announced soon. (Sneak preview: authors currently confirm include Heather O’Neill, Pasha Malla, Lisa Moore, Steven Heighton, Barbara Gowdy, Mary Walsh, Shari Lapena and Claire Cameron). You won’t want to miss the opportunity to hear these wonderful authors reading and discussing their works and to meet them at our signing table or as they also mingle, munch and enjoy the festival in the charming village of Eden Mills.
