The Knowlton Literary Festival is postponing this year’s fall Festival until 2021.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the board of directors, under the stewardship of the newly elected president, Jane Livingston, has taken the decision to forgo the October 2020 event. Fortunately, the authors scheduled for this fall’s 2020 festival, have all agreed to join us next year. They include Bob McDonald of CBC’s Quirks and Quarks, short story writer K.D. Miller, Toronto novelist Joanna Goodman, Janie Chang of Vancouver and also from Toronto, mystery writer John McFetridge with two Montreal-based crime novels. Isabelle LaFlèche will conduct the popular Writers’ Workshops. The Knowlton Literary Festival will preview all of these fine authors on their website and Facebook in a Webinar interview format. Please login and enjoy this unique glimpse into what will be offered during the 2021 Knowlton Literary Festival.
