Wordfest’s Imaginairium Festival

October 14, 2019 @ 6:00 pm MDT

A “Feast for Sore Minds,” the 2019 Imaginairium by Wordfest will feature over 65 authors exploring ideas Calgarians need now more than ever.

Authors participating including legendary Canadian author Louise Penny, whose #1 bestselling series of Chief Inspector Armand Gamache mystery novels have sold more than 6.3 Million copies; Emma Donoghue, who experienced blockbuster status with the success of her book and screenplay Room; and Chigozie Obioma, who last week was longlisted for the 2019 Booker Prize.

Many authors, like E. Jean Carroll, the world’s most famous advice columnist currently at the hot centre of the #MeToo conversation since accusing President Donald Trump of assaulting her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room 24 years ago (The Cut), are making Calgary’s Imaginairium their only Canadian event.
