Get literary under the prairie sky as Calgary authors perform their most YYC-worthy pieces at Olympic Plaza. Selected by the Alberta Magazine Publishers Association literary magazine members, these poets and storytellers represent the best in local literature. fS has chosen Jon R. Flieger, former contributor and current Fiction Editor, to represent us. He'll be reading a quirky little story called "The Brentwood Wendigo".
Come out on Sunday, August 26 from 1-2:30pm as Calgary's Poet Laureate Kris Demeanor leads an afternoon of Calgary prose and poetry from Shannon Lee Bennett, Marcello Di Cintio, Barb Howard, Naomi K. Lewis, Fred Stenson, and the aforementioned Jon R. Flieger
