SuperFan Showcase, Calgary: André Alexis & Yann Martel

When: Wednesday October 5th  @ 7 PM – 8:15 PM Mountain Time
Where: Memorial Park Library, 2nd Floor 1221 2 St SW, Calgary Alberta

PEN Canada and Wordfest are thrilled to be partnering together on the SuperFan Showcase series, in which notable Canadians engage in wide-ranging, generous conversation about writing and ideas with their favourite authors. When we approached Yann Martel, he loved the idea of an in-person show, but thought he would be the host, given how much he enjoys André Alexis’s work. Actually, it was André who asked for Yann – which demonstrates that this 75-minute event is going to be well-grounded in mutual admiration (although they will likely both recoil at the notion of super-fandom). Intelligent. Self-effacing. Unpredictable. Not to be missed.

Includes an audience Q&A and book signing. We are grateful to partner with Wordfest on this very special broadcast.

This event is part of Wordfest’s Imaginairium festival, Sept. 29 – Oct. 6, 2022. Connect with 60+ of the world’s most generous writers, thinkers, activators and inspirers, gathered just for you in Calgary, Canada. For more info: wordfest.com
