September 7 – 9, 2018: Celebrating 30 Years of Community and Great Canadian Literature
Announcing our 2018 Festival!
Every year, on a Sunday in September, book-lovers of all ages descend upon the village of Eden Mills to lounge in sloped backyards at the edge of the Eramosa River, and enjoy the luxury of being read to by their favourite authors.
A one-of-a-kind event, the EMWF is a showcase for CanLit legends and rising literary stars, featuring reading sets dedicated to young readers, YA readers, French audiences, as well as fans of poetry, creative non-fiction and more.
In recognition of our 30th anniversary, the EMWF has assembled a stellar lineup for Festival Sunday. With more than 40 authors attending the festival to read from recent work, the 2018 EMWF has something for everyone.
