Ahoy, book clubs in Nova Scotia!
The Word on the Street literacy fair happens along the Halifax Waterfront on Sunday, September 22, and once again, Mainstreet has teamed up with the Tall Ship Silva for a cruise around the harbour with a bunch of writers -- and we're saving spots on board for book clubs from around the province.
All you have to do for your chance to win is tell us why you want to cruise with us... and which author's book you'd like to read.
There's lots of variety on the list...
Lorne Elliott - Beach Reading (comedic novel about tourists in PEI)
William Kowalski - The Hundred Hearts (novel that covers post-traumatic stress disorder after the war in Afghanistan)
Russell Wangersky - Whirl Away (compilation of 12 short stories)
Sue Goyette - Ocean (book of poetry)
Greg Malone - Don't Tell the Newfoundlanders (non-fiction)
And I'll be aboard as well.
All you have to do for your chance to win is email us at

Put Set Sail in the subject line
Tell us why your book club wants to cruise with us, and which book you'd like to read. Be sure to include the number of members in your group. Get your entry in to us before midnight on Sunday, September 8 -- we'll announce our winners in the ensuing week.
Looking forward to meeting you aboard the Silva! And thanks to Murphy's on the Water and the Waterfront Development Corporation for helping us to set sail!
