November 2013 was One Book, One Calgary!
1,239 Calgarians Read it! Have You?
This year, our community explored the award winning novel, The Book of Negroes, by Canadian author, Lawrence Hill. Thirty-one programs and events took place during November, kicked off by a wonderful weekend of talks by the author.
From an African Artists' Showcase, dance, art and music to discussions about slavery past and present, our presenters and our community came together and enthusiastically shared stories and life experiences.
Lawrence Hill gave a riveting keynote address to a packed John Dutton Theatre.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's One Book One Calgary - with very special thanks to Lawrence Hill.
See you next year!
