Telling Tales

Telling Tales celebrates the important role Canadian storytellers play in shaping the future, bringing together authors, artists, musicians, and poets to engage even the most reluctant readers. Through stories we bond with our family, our friends, and our heroes. For 2020, the festival and other events will be held virtually, and will include presentations, workshops and performances, and an online bookmark contest.
