WordFest has released the lineup for the 2013 festival taking place October 14 to 20 in Banff and Calgary and there is plenty to look forward to.

A subjective list of highlights includes: Joseph Boyden Lynn Coady Colin McAdam Lisa Moore Chuck Palahniuk Andrew Pyper Geronimo Stilton (for the kids!) Alison Wearing and Michael Winter.
