Welcome Book Lovers

We’re proud to unveil a new look for Kingston WritersFest 2014 – a re-imagined and reconfigured design that is clean, clear, and easy to navigate, that expresses who we are: engaging, sophisticated yet fun, elegant yet quirky, thought-provoking, surprising, and inspiring.

Expect the same great website content: in-depth author profiles, a complete schedule, book club resources, and this year, grouped event suggestions that revolve around our programming themes:

  • Planet Earth: wilderness and the environment, sustainability and food
  • Digital Futures: the perils and pleasures of connectedness
  • The Caged Pen: writing in and out of prison; memories and images of Kingston Pen
  • Canada Made Me: Canadian authors living abroad, and foreign writers who choose Canada as home
  • Canada: War, Peace, and Politics

The complete list of events and full roster of authors will be available in late spring. Tickets go on sale August 7 at the Grand Theatre Box Office.
