gritLIT 2016: Festival Weekend

Wednesday, 4 May 2016

Authors Corrine Wasilewski, Brent van Staalduinen, and Sabrina Ramnanan.

I’m so pleased and proud to report that this year’s gritLIT: Readers and Writers Festival was the most successful yet. For me, one of the greatest joys was seeing many new faces I haven't seen before in the gritLIT audience. Even my own mom and sister attended their first readings. Along with new faces, we also received the support of some of my favourite local media outlets. Check us out in The Paper Street Journal and People of Hamilton.

Thanks as always to the folks at Bryan Prince Bookseller for acting as gritLIT's official bookstore.

 It's wonderful when the authors you admire turn out to be gracious, giving people, and Charles Taylor Award winner Plum Johnson is the perfect example of that. Here she is talking about They Left Us Everything, one of my favourite memoirs.

 Host Michael Winter really cares about our well-being. Stretch break.

Thanks to Kristin from I Heart Hamilton for joining us again this year as a host.
