Tzavta Salon: Susan Casey
Hosted by Christina Frangou
Park by Sidewalk Citizen
340 13 Ave SW
Susan Casey might be the perfect guest of honour at this innovative salon series that has hosted Pulitzer Prize winners, Nobel Prize winners, explorers, adventurers, physicians, scientists and all genres of artistic geniuses. The New York Times bestseller’s new book The Underworld takes us to the most mysterious, most compelling, least fathomable depths of the ocean. Your ticket includes a multi-course dinner, prepared by Park by Sidewalk Citizen chef Stefan Gusztak, followed by an interactive conversation with this leading thinker.
Launched in 2016, the Tzavta Dinner Salon – 'Tzavta' is the Hebrew word for the act of sitting together and sharing food and conversation among friends – aims to provide an intimate space to nurture conversation and the exchange of ideas. Salons take place in the award-winning Park by Sidewalk Citizen restaurant in Memorial Park and feature a menu created in collaboration with the featured guest, inspired by the bustling food markets of the Mediterranean and made with local ingredients. George Saunders, Chigozie Obioma, Liana Finck, and Max Porter are just a few of the authors Sidewalk Citizen has presented in partnership with Wordfest.
This event is part of Wordfest’s Imaginairium festival, Oct. 11-15, 2023. Connect with 50+ the world’s most arresting writers, thinkers, activators and inspirers, gathered just for you in Calgary, Canada. For more info: wordfest.com
