Much to everyone’s relief the constant rain that has plagued the Great Lakes Basin this year held off on Sunday for an overcast but otherwise fine day at Toronto’s Word on the Street.
Five Rivers’ booth, although minuscule and in the Fringe Beat of the festival, presented quite well if I do say so, and certainly drew interest from crowds.
Paul Lima, Kelly Stephens and I met colleagues and visitors throughout the day, made some great new contacts, and sold a few books to boot.
Will Five Rivers be at WOTS next year? I believe so, yes, but hope next year to upgrade from a five foot frontage to ten, and from the Fringe Beat section to the Writers Block.
