Writers at the Calgary Public Library

Today and tomorrow I’ll be attending two free events at the Calgary Public Library.

Tonight, Feb 1, my cousin-in-law, Diane Guichon, will be reading her poems at the Fish Creek Library as part of a poetry and photographs of Alberta presentation – with free wine and cheese. Her fellow readers are Calgary poets Bob Stallworthy and Micheline Maylor. If you want to go, check the library website to see if any places are remaining. Last time they had to turn people away. Your Calgary Public Library card is your ticket to enter.

Tomorrow, Saturday, Feb 2, is the free writers weekend in the John Dutton theatre at the Central Library. Presentations and panels run from morning through the afternoon on the topics of Writing Memoir and Biography, Engaging an Audience Through Online Writing, Ask the Editor, Children’s/YA Writing and Book Cover Design. A panel of writers will also discuss and answer questions about the writing process in the current publishing environment. Calgary writing groups for various genres will be hosting information tables. I’ll be organizing and helping to staff a table for the Calgary Crime Writers. Stop by and say “hi.” For more information, visit http://calgarypubliclibrary.com/services/programs-events/register-for-programs Keywords – writers weekend

I’m glad for this warm spell of weather so I can comfortably transit and walk to these events.
