The stage is set for the 19th and final Scream in High Park, on Monday July 11 at 7 p.m. The Scream in High Park has been the ultimate stage for a generation of this country’s finest writers. Under the bushes, under the stars, audiences have heard memorable readings from such luminaries as the late Robert Kroetsch, bill bissett, Nichole Brossard, and Christopher Dewdney as well as a newer wave of writers including Karen Solie, Ken Babstock, and Christian Bök.

The final Scream features a number of returning performers, some interesting collaborations and, as always, a few new voices. It promises to be an unforgettable night, one that pays tribute to the history of the Scream while looking forward to the bright future of Canadian literature.
