Wordfest presents Craig Davidson + Festival Preview

September 11, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm MDT

$15

Don’t miss this deliciously heartwarming and haunted evening with “one of this country’s great kinetic writers” (Globe and Mail). The Saturday Night Ghost Club is Craig Davidson’s first new novel since his bestselling, Giller-shortlisted Cataract City and cements his reputation as Canada’s Stephen King. This event kicks off with an exclusive “reveal” of The Imaginarium, coming to Wordfest’s 23rd Annual Reader’s Festival from October 8 to 15, 2018, hosted by Shelley Youngblut, followed by an interview with Craig Davidson, readings, audience Q&A and book signing.
