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!
