The 24th Annual Eden Mills Writers’ Festival
September 14-17, 2012
The Eden Mills Writers' Festival brings together book lovers and Canadian authors in a beautiful and relaxed outdoor setting in the village of Eden Mills, located just outside of Guelph. Founded in 1989 by Leon Rooke, the Festival has taken place annually ever since.
The children’s area is lively as children are immersed in a book-loving world sitting on blankets with friends and family, listening, learning and laughing. Our aim is to entertain through books; to open children’s minds to the possibilities, and to stir their emotions
Bring a blanket, lie on the grass and enjoy a literary picnic on the banks of the Eramosa River.
The Eden Mills Writers' Festival is a widely respected literary event dedicated to promoting and raising awareness of Canadian literature. The Festival is made possible by the support of our sponsors, including the Ontario Arts Council, the Canada Council, Canadian Heritage, The Angel Gabriel Foundation, Scotiabank, and the many friends of the Festival who devote their time and energy to make it happen.
