Saltspring Words Without Borders Festival

Friday, February 24, 2012 - 18:00 - Sunday, February 26, 2012 - 23:59

This year Salt Spring is kicking-off Freedom to Read Week by hosting a festival at the intersection of politics and culture.

Words Without Borders celebrates writing that breaks down boundaries of all sorts. It’s about challenging taboos, and using literature to speak truth to power. It’s about writers who bring the voices of marginalized people into the mainstream. It’s about bridging the gap between generations through poetry. It’s about bringing stories of heroism and suffering that take place far beyond our borders into the public conversation.
