An Open Letter to the Community

The Board of Directors has decided to discontinue presenting author events and is in the process of dissolving the corporation. The festival has been TIWF’s gift to Brockville for six years. We have loved all the challenges it presented us with. Simply said: it was a labour of love from start to finish!

Thank you to all TIWF members, festival attendees and sponsors who have supported our efforts to bring you so many wonderful authors over the years. We hope that your love of reading will continue to support the many regional, local, and all other authors in the future.

Books serve to show a man that those original thoughts of his aren’t very new after all.

Abraham Lincoln

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.

Charles W. Eliot, Harvard University

Books are like a garden in your pocket
