Rob at Book Festival in Calgary this Saturday, December 9

IFWA Christmas Book Festival!

(in conjunction with the Calgary 2008 World Fantasy Convention)

Come one, come all to the first ever IFWA-sponsored Christmas Book Festival. Food! Fun! ... and Books!

(IFWA is the Imaginative Fiction Writers Association, Calgary's venerable SF&F writing workshop.)

View the poster (with map) here.

From high noon through 4:00 p.m. we'll have an assortment of All-You-Can-Eat food and drink! Bring along your orphaned books for trade with other avid readers at Honest Ivan's Book Exchange! (Our own Ivan Dorin.)

Special Events:
  • At 1:00 p.m. Special Guest Hugo Award winning author Robert J. Sawyer will be on hand to lead a discussion on how near-future technology will save Mankind.

  • At 2:00 p.m. Cliff Samuels will moderate a Book Discussion on new and old books worth reading.

  • At 3:00 p.m. we'll hold our Enormous Book Raffle! We have a mountain of SF&f hard covers, trades, and paperbacks. And even a few non-book items.

Raffle Tickets available throughout the afternoon: $1 each; 6 for $5; 15 for $10.

We've also been warned that Satan Claus, that devilish old saint, will put in an appearance and reward all the bad little boys and girls. He knows who's been naughty ... and approves!

When: Saturday, December 9, 2006, from 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m.
Where: Danita Maslankowski's Recreation Centre / Party Room*
Cost: $10
