Read by the Sea is a summer literary festival featuring readings by outstanding Canadian authors. The three-day festival includes WordPlay, a fun-filled mini festival for children of all ages; OnWords, a brand new event for middle-grade and young adult readers; Wordstock, a series of literary and storytelling shenanigans; and Main Stage, a day of author readings and Q&A.
Read by the Sea aims to promote Canadian literature by celebrating good books, the people who write them and the people who read them; and by encouraging new or non-readers to discover the joy of reading. The festival fosters diversity and accessibility to both the authors and the audience, regardless of cultural, racial, gender, age, ability, socioeconomic or other circumstances.
In order to encourage everyone to participate, there are no admission fees to Read by the Sea events – although the festival does accept donations to support its mandate. Remember to bring your lawn chair, sunscreen, sun hat, and a picnic lunch (if you wish).
