The one-and-only Prince Edward County is one of Southern Ontario's more precious gems. Practically surrounded by water, with Lake Ontario to the south, the head of the St. Lawrence River to the east and the beautifully-named Bay of Quinte to the north, it's no wonder that artists and those with inquisitive and reflective souls flock to this region (along with the numerous resident birds). The County, as it's known to locals, is home to the Prince Edward County Authors Festival, Al Purdy's storied A-Frame, Picton's Books & Co, fine wines (always a nice addition to an evening of reading) and much more.

Follow our Focus On series throughout the month of April for author profiles, feature articles and our new favourite, the regional Recommended Reads!
