love a good story?

Join Calgary Reads and an amazing repertoire of readers for Anthology – a monthly collection of storytelling, idea sharing, and inspiration… all related to books! The possibilities are limitless, and every session brings a new treasury-trove!

Anthology runs on the last Tuesday of every month:

The Alexandra Centre Society (922 9 Avenue SE)


drop in, drop by, no registration required

$10.00 at the door (in support of the Children’s Reading Place just across the street)!


Julie Van Rosendaal’s dirty food takes a bite out of diet culture and ‘clean eating’ to revel in the sticky, saucy, gooey, crumbly, messy, and inherently shareable recipes that stand as metaphors for human life. The local author and cook will be at Anthology to talk more about confection and connection.


Local Journalist Taylor Lambert drops by Anthology to delve into his W.O. Mitchell Prize-winning Darwin’s Moving… a story about criminality, classism, and Calgary, and the people who can, and do, literally move our lives.


Trudy Cowan, Quilter-Extraordinaire, shares more about fibre arts, quilted illustrations, and weaving text with textiles through her book The Little Grey Mouse: A Fable in Fabric.
