    Spur

    by Phil - 0 Comment(s)

    An exciting new festival is set to grip the city this weekend.

    Spur is a festival of "politics, art and ideas and is a catalyst for change in Canada". It was founded last year and is already spreading to five cities across the country. It's Calgary's turn starting tonight and the lineup of events and speakers looks truly amazing...

    The Opening Reception will take place at the ConocoPhillips Theatre in the Glenbow Museum tonight at 8:30 p.m., following Borders and Geopolitics: The World in Seven Years with Diane Francis, author of Merger of the Century: Why Canada and the U.S. Should Become One Country. After that the lineup of events for Saturday and Sunday will surely live up to Spur's namesake, offering Calgary the opportunity to join "today's most provocative thinkers and scholars, artists and activists, journalists and entrepreneurs - from across the country and beyond - to share ideas worth spurring into action."

    Go to the Spur festival website for complete details and ticket information. Go to your local library for the authors' work, such as Terry Fallis, who you can have coffee with on Sunday at Hotel St Germain, where he will read from and discuss his forthcoming novel, No Relation.
