What makes Wordfest’s The Way We… storytelling series such a powerful experience? The diversity of takes and tales each topic sparks. Here, seven authors explore their unique relationship to the notion of place. Is it rooted in the land, in geography –whether urban, rural, or wilderness – or could it be completely fictitious? Do they define ‘place’ through activism, politics, or personal identity? What about exile and alienation? About belonging? What is it about a place that enables us to feel at home?

This 90-minute showcase will be hosted by Pam Rocker, atypical activist, speaker, award-winning writer, and musician. It includes book signing. 

Celebrating Calgary: Laureate-A-Rama

Starring Derek Beaulieu, Wakefield Brewster, Kris Demeanor, Micheline Maylor, Natalie Meisner & Sheri-D Wilson

Oct 06 @ 7 PM – 8:30 PM MT $20
DJD Dance Centre

We wouldn’t have it any other way: the Closing Night Showcase of Wordfest’s 27th annual fall festival is a celebration of YYC’s most vocal arts ambassadors, our Poet Laureates. Launched in 2012, and supported by the Calgary Foundation and the Calgary Public Library, the program has placed the literary laurel crown (or should that be the black beret?) on Kris Demeanor, derek beaulieu, Micheline Maylor, Sheri-D Wilson, Natalie Meisner, and, for the current two-year term, Wakefield Brewster. Join us for the first time that all six exceptional poets will perform on the same stage. 

And who else could host this 90-minute showcase of Calgaricity than Naheed Nenshi? Let’s get loud. Let’s get proud. Let’s come alive! Includes post-show book signing.
