StoryFest 2020 - A Virtual Event!

Each year, Greenwood Centre's StoryFest Committee organizes a remarkable lineup of distinguished and engaging authors and storytellers to be part of the StoryFest schedule.  Due to the present situation, StoryFest 2020 will be a unique, virtual event taking place via Zoom.  It's an autumn event not to be missed! 

Here is an overview of this year's lineup...


Take advantage of our partnership with Librarie Clio located in Pointe-Claire.

You can purchase books by many of our featured authors directly through Clio! Scroll down on their home page and look for StoryFest 2020.  Thank you for supporting this fine Independent Bookstore

StoryFest Registration Instructions

In order to ensure that you are fully signed up for our StoryFest events (whether the Author talks or the Writers Workshop) you must register on CanadaHelps (here) and then reserve your spot through Zoom.  

Click on the names of each author you wish to reserve for:

Joan Thomas - October 1

Annabel Lyon - October 8

Margaret MacMillan - October 15

Emily Urquhart - October 22

Michelle Good - October 29

Thomas Schnurmacher - November 1

The cost for the Writers Workshop with Michaela Di Cesare is $125 to attend all three sessions or $50 to attend just one (space is limited).

All three workshops (Oct 17, 24 and 31)

Autobiographical Storytelling (October 17)

Specifics to Recreate and Relate Your World (October 24)

Honouring a Greater Truth with Some White Lies (October 31)

To complete the registration, you should receive THREE notices:

  1. A first entitled "StoryFest 2020: author name and date: Your Order Confirmation" 
  2. A second entitled "Your Ticket for StoryFest 2020: author name and date"  INCLUDES a link to register via ZOOM; which you must click on in order to complete your registration
  3. Once you click on the link, a third message will pop up; you MUST FILL IN AND CLICK THE BLUE REGISTER button for the ZOOM Webinar (or Meeting for workshops) otherwise you will not be able to attend the online event. Again, this link is in the email entitled "Your Ticket...".
  • It is possible that emails 1 and 2 (Confirmation and Ticket) are not received at the same time; or that you receive #2 before #1.  
  • The ticket (PDF) which is included in both CanadaHelps emails is of no use for the online events; you must receive the ZOOM passcode.
  • You MUST register for EACH event you choose to attend individually.  

The most important thing to ensure is that you REGISTER on the ZOOM Webinar link for each event you choose to attend, only obtaining the CanadaHelps Ticket(s) will not give  you the passcode you need to attend the online Webinar.

Although there is no cost for these live author Zoom events, donations to the Greenwood Centre for Living History would be appreciated and can be made at the time of reservation (through CanadaHelps).
