July 13 – 15, 2018 Program and Tickets (coming soon)

The Lakefield Literary Festival celebrates the rich literary heritage of its locale and showcases many current Canadian authors with events scheduled throughout a weekend in mid-July close to Margaret Laurence’s birthday. Events provide an opportunity to hear authors discuss their books and related topics, followed by an opportunity to meet the authors while they sign any of their books you have purchased. The Festival also includes workshops, a historical walk, a children’s author and illustrator event, as well as a writing contest for high school students in the Peterborough area. Festival venues in the town of Lakefield and nearby Lakefield College School are located 20 minutes north of Peterborough, less than 2 hours east of Toronto.
