Writers at the Calgary Public Library

The first weekend of February I’ll be taking advantage of a host of free programs at the Calgary Public Library.

Friday evening, 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. I’m told the last time Fish Creek Library held this event they had to turn away people at the door. Who knew poetry was such a draw? If you have a Calgary Public Library card, you might want to secure your spot by registering on the library website.

Saturday, Feb 2, is the free writers weekend in the John Dutton theatre at the Central Library. Presentations and panels run from morning to 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.
