An Intern’s First Festival

Posted on October 10 by Kyle

(because you can’t go to Word on the Street and not talk about it.)

Starting a marketing internship in September means a lot of things, from working with a very full fall list (so many amazing books!), to getting to participate in one of Canada’s biggest literary festival there is, Word on the Street. As my first Word on the Street, I was super excited to not only go, but to help out with it as well. And for anyone thinking about going, or wondering what it’s all about, here’s a handy little guide from your trusty Dundurn intern.

From September 14 to September 17, I traveled around Nova Scotia, talking about my new book, Raising Royalty: 1000 Years of Royal Parenting. The book examines how 20 sets of royal parents from medieval times to modern times raises their children, from fending off Viking attacks to fending off paparazzi.

It was a lot of fun to work at the Dundurn booth for Word on the Street this year. I wish I had had more time to wander around Queen's Park it was such a beautiful day, but I did appreciate being in the breezy shade of the tent. This year we had two authors every half hour sit down to sign books and meet readers, everybody from children's author Philippa Dowding to ghost research enthusiast Mark Leslie.
