Celebrating 30 Years of Community and Great Canadian Literature

Despite the chilly weather, our 30th anniversary festival was a resounding success.

Thank you to the writers for sharing their words, to the volunteers for their dedication, to the festival sponsors and donors for their support and generosity, and to all who attended, for their enthusiastic love of books.

We hope to see you back in Eden Mills in 2019!
