You could call it our podcast. Or accessible audio recordings of our most memorable in-person shows. We think of these episodes as yet another way to connect the world’s best audiences to the world’s best authors, enabling you to focus on the big ideas, life-changing insights, and moments of magic that define Wordfest events. Check back regularly for more thought-provoking episodes, custom-crafted for you by Wordfest.
If you enjoy everything Wordfest does to help connect audiences of all ages to the world’s best authors, please consider donating to our Legacy Fund.
Contributions go toward an unrestricted reserve that can be accessed to continue to innovate and design programs for long-term sustainability, as well as provide free tickets to those unable to access our programming. You will also be fuelling our Wordfest Youth Program, which focuses on teen literacy in Grades 5 to 12 to spark the next generation of engaged Calgarians and avid readers. Your generosity meaningfully connects Calgary students with the world’s most inspiring authors – such as Sarah Polley, Cherie Dimaline, Yann Martel, Cadence Weapon, David A. Robertson, and Tegan & Sara – including purchasing much-needed sets of books for classrooms. Learn more here.
