Thank you. Again.

The 2010 Elora Writers’ Festival: a Star-Studded Event

This year the Elora Writers’ Festival turned out to be a truly exciting afternoon of readings, Linden MacIntyre, long-time co-host of CBC Television's The Fifth Estate read from his Scotiabank Giller Prize-winning novel “The Bishop's Man.” (It was also awarded the Dartmouth Book Award for Fiction and the Atlantic Independent Booksellers' Choice Award.)

The Elora Writers’ Festival also featured readings by celebrated authors: Terry Fallis, (His self-published debut novel "The Best Laid Plans" was awarded the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour in 2008 and has been chosen by Waterloo Region as its 2010 selection for One Book, One Community); Bonnie Burnard; Pasha Malla; Ray Robertson; and Barry Dempster.
The venue for this year’s event was, once again, Heritage River (25 Wellington Dr.) at the top of Cuthbert Street in Elora.
Tickets ($15.00) were available at the door, or at Roxanne's Reflections Book & Card Shop, 152 St. Andrew St. West, Fergus (Phone: 519-843-4391).
