Word on the Street Festival

HCLN celebrated literacy, learning and the love of books with hundreds of others on the Halifax waterfront at the Word on the Street Festival on Sunday, Sept. 21st. The weather was spectacular and authors including Sylvia Hamilton, Vincent Lam, Lesley Crewe, George Elliot Clarke and Micheal Winter, as well as many others, shared their stories with us.

More than two hundred people dropped by the HCLN booth to chat, learn about our programs and occasionally to vent about cuts to literacy services including our own Literacy Nova Scotia. More info here: www.ns.literacy.ca

Thanks to Pat, Josh and Sandy for helping out and to everyone who visited our booth to show their support for literacy programs. Thanks also to the WOTS team for organizing such an awesome event: www.thewordonthestreet.ca/wots/halifax
