Prove you’re the smartest person in the library. Win big-league bragging rights and tasty beverages. Join the Calgary Public Library and Wordfest for the 14th Edition of Calgary’s most Guilt-Free Trivia Competition, hosted by Richard Kemick. Trivia questions are loosely inspired by Calgary journalist Taylor Lambert and his book, Darwin’s Moving. But familiarity with his writing is not required and will not necessarily increase your chances of winning.

About Taylor Lambert

Taylor Lambert is a journalist who has published three previous books, including Leaving Moose Jaw and the Calgary bestseller, Rising: Stories of the 2013 Alberta Flood. To pay for tuition and later to offset his freelance writing, Lambert worked moving furniture, which led to the idea to write a book centered on the moving industry: Darwin’s Moving. He currently resides in Calgary.

About Darwin’s Moving

Darwin’s Moving is an intriguing and affecting exploration of class divides by a journalist and former mover. Lambert takes us behind the scenes of a familiar industry that is almost completely undocumented in Canadian literature to reveal the cycles of poverty and addiction that ensnare its workers. This is the other Calgary, a world populated by transient men and women struggling to survive in a boomtown’s shadow.
