Kristen Holm, Calgary Public Library
During the month of November the Calgary Public Library is launching One Book One Calgary. The inaugural book chosen for this event is Aritha van Herk’s “Mavericks: An Incorrigible History of Alberta”. Through this initiative the Calgary Public Library hopes to encourage the citizens of Calgary to explore their past, examine their present and imagine their future.
According to the Library’s website the One Book One Calgary initiative “represents the most ambitious program initiative ever undertaken at the Calgary Public Library.” Working collaboratively with civic partners, leadership organizations, artist, entertainers and scholars from across the city, the Calgary Public Library will be delivering innovative and thought provoking programming throughout the 17 community branch libraries.
