This year’s eighth installment of the Words Aloud festival — November 4, 5 and 6 at the Durham Arts Gallery in the autumn-colours-drenched town of Durham, Ontario — promises its eager audiences the best in Spoken Word from across Canada (and New York City).
It’s “a magical alchemy of spoken word’s full range,” say the organizers. Wow! Among the noted participants is four-time National Magazine Award winner (thrice for Fiction; once for Poetry) Steven Heighton, who is on the schedule for a Saturday evening reading and a Sunday afternoon workshop.
