Word On The Street


IDA Ontario is excited to participate in the first virtual

Word on the Street Book & Magazine Festival!

Visit our virtual booth at the online Word on the Street literacy festival, on now through September 27! You'll find us in the Marketplace under 'Organizations'.

And, you can hear IDA Ontario President Alicia Smith speak live on Instagram during the Digital Soapbox this Thursday, September 24 at 6 pm.

The Word On The Street is a non-profit organization that celebrates Canadian reading, writing, and champions literacy primarily through a free, annual festival. Each September, in communities from coast-to-coast, everyone is invited to participate in hundreds of author events, presentations, and workshops, and to browse a marketplace that boasts the best selection of Canadian books and magazines you’ll find anywhere. And it’s free!
