Now in its sixth year, Kingston WritersFest is confirmed as a prime Kingston cultural event and one of the top Canadian literary festivals. Our audiences visit from as far away as Vancouver, North Carolina, Vermont, and the UK, as well as Quebec and Ontario, and our authors come from around the world and down the block.
International best-selling author Wally Lamb opens the Festival on Wednesday, September 24, in the International Marquee.
