Adopt an author at Word on the Street

Have you ever wanted to own your own author? Now you can, with a $100 donation to Word on the Street Toronto.

In exchange for a contribution to the non-profit organization, select from a list of 50 adoptee authors, including the latest Q&Q cover subject Guy Vanderhaeghe, Sheila Heti, Kenneth J. Harvey, and Sean Dixon. Adopters will receive a copy of their author’s book and a chance to meet them at WOTS. In addition, there will be a personalized certificate (and tax receipt) to honour the day,  just like when you adopt goats through Oxfam.

More details are available on the WOTS Toronto website. No word yet on how much water authors require, or how many times a day they need to be fed.
