Since 1995 The Vancouver Book and Magazine Fair Society has produced The Word On The Street Vancouver, the primary literary festival for Western Canadian book lovers and literacy enthusiasts. In 2013 the festival rebranded as Word Vancouver.
The Vancouver Book and Magazine Fair Society strives to promote literacy by bringing the literature of Canadian, and particularly British Columbian, artists to as broad an audience as possible. Our goal is to attract people of all ages and backgrounds to a festival in which each event is at once educational and entertaining.
This year’s festival will take place during the week of Monday, September 24, to Sunday, September 30, 2018. Stay tuned for more details!
