dc.descriptionThe World of Words organization was a literary group founded in 1999 in the Niagara Region committed to promoting the written and spoken word. They planned to accomplish this through an annual festival that brought together local authors, publishers and other community partners. Festival events included book signings, readings, writing workshops, book fair, and history panel. The Niagara Book Prize was created in 2000, and became part of the festival activities. The award was open to authors of fiction, non-fiction, poetry or drama, who were Niagara residents. Authors who were awarded the prize include William J. Thomas, Terrance Cox, and Hans Temmemagi. The group also established the Author Passport Series and provided children’s programs in collaboration with the library. The World of Words organization, festival and book prize appear to have been discontinued after 2003.en_US
