    Calgary's First Poet Laureate

    by Phil - 0 Comment(s)

    Six names have been shortlisted for the honour of Calgary's first poet laureate. It's hard to say exactly what this means, as this city has never had its own poet laureate, but that's the exciting part. We get to find out!

    The six poets will be appearing on Thursday, March 1 from 7:00 to 9:00pm at Hotel Arts (119 12th Ave. SW) for a showcase of presentations and conversations hosted by Russell Bowers of CBC Radio's Daybreak Alberta. Until then, place a hold on the titles by clicking the book covers below, and decide who you think deserves to wear the crown of all Calgary muses.
