Don’t miss it!
The SPARKS Literary Festival was established in 2009 to celebrate the literary creations of Newfoundland and Labrador. An initiative by poet and professor Mary Dalton, founder and director, with the support of the Faculty of Arts, SPARKS showcases writers at various stages of their creative lives and is what Dalton has called a "word spree." The festival also makes available displays of books and journals published in Newfoundland and Labrador and a mini-bookstore featuring books by the authors reading.
