Wordfest is showcasing six of Calgary’s most captivating authors, as well as one brave Edmontonian, in an evening focused on the power of connection: with stories, with books, with each other, with all that we’ve desperately missed for the last two years. Sponsored by RISE UP Calgary, we invite you to revel in powerful open-mic style performances by Ali Bryan, Bertrand Bickersteth, Will Ferguson, Larissa Lai, Omar Mouallem, George Webber, and Teresa Wong.
