Lady Lougheed’s Literary Luncheon

CLICK HERE for Bill Brooks’ enthusiastic article about this fundraising event for the Lougheed House in September. The keynote speech was by author Shaun Hunter, who highlighted three women authors in Calgary’s past.

Although we missed this luncheon, the Lougheed House, with Shaun Hunter (author of Calgary Through the Eyes of Writers,) will host a 2020 exhibition beginning January 23 called Literati: Calgary’s Early Writers.

Mark your new calendars!

Is this serendipity, or what?

Having just discovered Shaun Hunter’s blog on Calgary through writers’ eyes, Carol Blyth shared this event with local authors Sharon Butala, Brian Brennan and Ruth Scalp Lock, to be moderated by Shaun Hunter on February 8.

Full disclosure: I know Shaun and she is worth meeting in her own right! Janet Halls
