DOOMED TOUR: Chuck Will Be Attending WordFest In Calgary, Canada

Chuck Will Be Attending WordFest In Calgary, Canada

WordFest recently announced their line-up for their 2013 festival, and among that list are literary heavyweights such as Margaret Atwood, Peter Robinson, Jeffrey Deaver and of course, Chuck Palahniuk (full article here).

I'm not that familiar with WordFest, but I know Chuck has attended in past years.  Here's a short description of the festival from their official website:

WordFest’s main event is a week-long literary festival that features upwards of 65 writers from the local, national and international stage. The Festival has approximately 60 separate events and attracts an audience of over 14,000. Some events also offer programming in multiple languages such as French and Spanish. Festival events take place across Calgary and in Banff through founding production partner, The Banff Centre.

It looks like Chuck will be attending the festival on Friday, October 18th for two events.  The first event is a reception where fans will get to hang out with their favorite authors.  He'll then be doing a reading shortly after at the John Dutton Theatre in the Calgary Public Library.

Info on the reception event as well as how to purchase tickets is available here.  And you can purchase tickets for the reading here.
