Alberta MLA's Greg Weadick and Bridget Pastoor to give our free cameras in support of the Lethbridge Public Library contest "Caught Reading"
Thanks to Lethbridge MLA’s Greg Weadick and Bridget Pastoor, the Lethbridge Public Library “Caught Reading” Contest will get a kickstart Festival Day (September 25th, 2011) as Lethbridge West and Lethbridge East collaborate to supply disposable cameras for some lucky festival -goers.
This photo contest will be officially launched on International Literacy Day which is September 8th this year. With the generosity of our two MLA’s, free disposable cameras will be given out at the event and participants will be encouraged to take and submit photos of the different activities involving reading, authors or any example of someone “Caught Reading”.

Thank you to our official radio sponsors Country 95.5 and B-93 for helping us to get the word out… so excited to have the Boom Box on site Festival Day!
Lots of exciting things happening in and around The Word On The Street Festival! The Lethbridge Public Library in conjunction with The Most Vocal Poets Society is bringing Radio Personality and Poet Nik Beat to Lethbridge.
“Nik Beat has spent much time writing and playing music, and this shows in the lyricism of his work. His images and narratives are celebrations of pop culture, which allow his poetry to be direct, unpretentious, and uninhibited. ” ( http://www.kingsleyettienne.com)
Find him in the Theatre Gallery at the Lethbridge Public Library on September 22nd. He’ll be setting the pace for what is guarenteed to be an awesome weekend of spoken word, authors, music and fun!
Check out Nik Beat’s God Is A Romantic Scientist, Night Makes Us All Stars or Sir Real on our Myspace Page or keep your ears tuned to CKXU Sundays from 5 to 6 p.m to catch his tracks on The Word On The Street Radio Show.
