Pages Books on Kensington Resumes Popular Book Series
Starting this September, Pages Books has partnered with the Calgary Public Library to present large format events for avid Calgary readers at the newly re-opened Central Library’s John Dutton Theatre. Pages at the Public Library will be a semi-regular series featuring bestselling, much admired writers. As per Pages’ mission to promote homegrown literature, as often as possible, local authors will be featured too.
Because Pages is working with the CPL, we can offer these events for free,but we do request preregisteration at the Library’s website, (information follows) so that we know how many are coming. Once again, we will offer attendees a discount on pre-ordered books, which can either be picked up at the store prior to the event, or at the event itself. Contact Pages at (403) 283-6655 for more information.
The series begins Monday, September 30 with the launch of “The Flood of 2013: A Summer of Angry Rivers in Southern Alberta” by the Calgary Herald, with a foreword by Naheed Nenshi, It is a behind the scenes look at how the Calgary Herald marshaled its reporters, photographers, videographers, and digital producers to cover the largest news event to have occurred in Calgary in its media history. The flood is fresh in all our memories, but few of us appreciate the measures it took to keep people informed on an ongoing basis. Monica Zurowski, Managing Editor, Tony Seskus, Assignment Editor, Jason Markusoff, Reporter/Blogger, Stuart Gradon, Photojournalist Leah Hennel, Photojournalist, Lorne Motley, Editor-in-chief from the Herald will recount their flood experiences, tell the stories behind the stories they produced, and be joined by special guests…
On Friday, October 25 renown crime novelist Jo Nesbø visits Calgary, as one of two stops on his Canadian tour for: “Police,” the thrilling follow-up to his #1 bestseller “Phantom.” His Harry Hole series continues to grow in popularity across Canada, and we are very excited to host him.
In “Police” several police officers are found murdered at the scene of an old and unsolved murder case that they were involved in investigating. The killings are extremely brutal and bestial. The police have no leads. What's more, they're missing their best investigator. A severely wounded man in a coma is kept alive at a hospital in Oslo. The room is guarded by the police and the identity of the patient is kept secret.
Jo will be joined by local author Garry Ryan, who is celebrating the release of “Foxed” the sixth book in his award-winning and Calgary Herald bestselling series of Detective Lane mysteries. Jo and Garry will also interview each other about the writing life.
On Tuesday, November 26 revered CBC Radio host Shelagh Rogers will tape a segment for her popular book program “The Next Chapter” and interview Rt. Hon. Joe Clark about his new book: “How We Lead: Canada in a Century of Change.” It is a passionate argument for Canada's reassertion of its place on the world stage, from a former prime minister and one of Canada's most respected political figures.
We hope that you will join us for these exciting events!
