2019 brings the 1000 Islands Writers Festival into its fifth fabulous year, and to build on our success we are bringing together another talented group of Canadian authors and illustrators who will appeal to all ages and interests. In addition to favorite events like the Living Room Sessions, 2019 will include new sessions for songwriters, events for families with young children, and a community celebration of local authors that will bring the 1000 island spirit to life through stories and songs.
Since our first festival in 2015, our Honorary Festival Patron, two-time Leacock Medal winner Terry Fallis, has played a pivotal role in our festival. Terry’s sense of humour combined with his clever eloquence have endeared him to Canadians from coast to coast. Our hearts tie quickly to the plights of his characters, and the laughter he draws from us with each new exploit leaves us all craving more.
What a wonderful way to enjoy a spring weekend… We look to having you join us for more Reading by the River!
