Writers Festival, Ottawa

The Writers Festival of Ideas is coming in a month or so. The schedule is starting to go up. It begins April 22 and has a new venue: the Mayfair Theatre in Old Ottawa South (1074 Bank Street at Sunnyside).

So far,

  • changing how we eat — foodies, 100-milers, urbanites, farmers, gardeners and chefs

  • Jane Goodall in town talking about hope for animals (April 12)
  • a murder mystery sequel by Alan Bradley
  • a talk on making sensible changes for the environment in revolutionary—not just incremental—levels for the way we live and work
  • a walk thru indigenous cultures versus globalization
  • a panel discussion on new Penguin biographies including one on Marshall McLuhan
  • getting off our oil-based economy

No poetry yet except for inherently how lives are lived.

It’s a lovely week for literature. As usual Blue Metropolis Writers Festival in Montreal overlaps. They’re having Master Classes — poetry with Paul Muldoon and spoken word with Bob Holman.
