The best place to stay in Calgary
Calgary doesn’t get enough credit for being one of the biggest artistic hubs in Western Canada. From music to comedy to theatre to the written word, Calgary’s wide open skies attract the most powerful and prolific artists of our generation.

If you’re a book lover, you owe it to yourself to check out Calgary’s literary festival, Wordfest. Taking place over six days on October 10-15, Wordfest is an extravaganza of literary delights. Can’t wait until then? Wordfest offers sponsored events throughout September, where acclaimed authors will speak about their inspirations, challenges, and triumphs! Check out these coming events.


Brothers Clem and Olivier Martini are the perfect creative partners for each other; one is an award winning playwright, and the other is a stunning and inventive visual artist. Together they have crafted two searing graphic novels that chronicle Olivier’s struggle with schizophrenia, Bitter Medicine and its sequel, The Unravelling. On September 14, they will join host Jennifer Keene to discuss the creation of these pieces, the difficulty of autobiographical writing, and the responsibilities involved in portraying not only mental illness but also the inner lives of your family. Tickets here.


Author Kate Hilton tells gripping, insightful stories about the crises that we experience in our lives that are both dramatic and realistic, honest and deeply compelling. We can’t put down her latest, Just Like Family, the story of a professional woman coming to terms with what she wants and needs in life and love. She will join the Wordfest Lab to talk about her literary journey on September 20 – tickets and details available here.
