Storied City: Early Calgary through the Eyes of Writers.

Page, Isabel Paterson, Winnifred Eaton Reeve, Laura Goodman Salverson, Robert J.C.Stead, Arthur Stringer and Flos Jewell Williams) whom you should discover and celebrate.

The exhibit includes literary works, photographs, biographies, literary excerpts, National Film Board videos, an annotated literary map of 1920’s Calgary, artifacts (including a framed broadsheet of E. Pauline Johnson’s poem Calgary of the Plains), ephemera about writing and the writing life (including a 1920’s typewriter), and an interactive soundscape of contemporary Calgary authors and storytellers reading historic writers’ works. The contemporary readers whose voices you will hear on the audio excerpts are: Juleta Severson-Baker, Will Ferguson, Rosemary Griebel, Karen Gummo, Lori Hahnel, Aritha van Herk, Betty Hersberger, Barb Howard, Dale Lee Kwong, Taylor Lambert, Kirk Miles and Fred Stenson.
