Thank you, authors, audience, and sponsors, for making Kingston WritersFest 2009 such a resounding success.

We celebrated great literature Wednesday, September 23 through Saturday, September 26, at the Holiday Inn Kingston Waterfront with some of the best writers working in Canada today – recent award-winners, this year’s Giller nominees, and the must-reads of tomorrow.

All together, some 3500 book-lovers from Kingston and as far away as Australia and Trinidad attended the Kingston WritersFest. More than half of our events were sold out, and some festival-goers took in as many as 20 events!
