This year's LitFest officially kicks off the night before at Kingston's Grad Club! Join Dave Bidini as he chats with professional hockey player and author, Terry Ryan, Lake Ontario's Poet Laureate, Tanis Rideout, and novelist, Steven Heighton!

The following day, hop on the ferry and make your way across the St. Lawrence River to Brophy's Point. You can check the location in Swim Guide. The festival for literary lovers begins at 3pm. Hosted by Mark Medley with readings from Joseph Boyden, Michael Winter, Lemon Hound and Sina Queyras, Jeramy Dodds, Denise Donlan, Carolyn Smart, and Steven Heighton.

For the second consecutive year the Watermark Project will be at LitFest! Standing along the shoreline of Wolfe Island, inspiration is easy to find – and so will your Watermark!

The musical guest for the event is currently TBA. Stay tuned!

Programmed by Dave Bidini and Mark Mattson.
