Friday was a fun evening at Fish Creek Library’s annual Wine and Cheese event, featuring wine samples sponsored by Willow Park Wines & Spirits, cheese provided by Springbank Cheese, paintings and photography by local artists and readings by Calgary writers. This year, I was thrilled to be invited to read, along with Fran Porter and Rosemary Nixon, this fall’s Calgary Public Library writer-in-residence.
Close to 200 people attended. A large number brought their wine into the reading room. They seemed to enjoy the readings and asked lots of interesting questions. Many thanks to the Fish Creek librarians for including me in their event. I hope to attend next year to listen to other readers, while sampling some tasty wines and cheeses.
