Word on the Very Wet Street

Tenacious readers and writers clung to their little patches of pavement as the rain tried to wipe out the Word on the Street Festival. There were writers reading excerpts, publishers hawking books, zine artists talking with sci-fi writers reading cook books discussing the occult with vegan diarists.

Standouts included the zine and graphic novel cave in the Alice MacKay Room, Wade Compton's reading from a piece published in Event Magazine, and Barbara Stewart's reading from her creative nonfiction novel Campie.

Even the pigeons liked it! At first they were like, "What the...?" But soon they were like, "Aw, yeah!"
