What You'll Get


A literary festival exposes heads to books they might otherwise not have encountered, much like a fiction reading club or a toppling bookcase. Get hit with knowledge with today's GrouponLive deal for two general-admission tickets to a LitFest event. Choose from the following options:

The only nonfiction festival in Canada, LitFest brings gaggles of preeminent writers to Edmonton for two weeks of lectures, talks, and readings. Promoting her new book, Allah, Liberty and Love, professor, journalist, and political activist Irshad Manji will host an evening of questions and discussions on the nature of Islam, stuffing heads with knowledge to digest during walks home or 30 minutes before swimming. "Stories About Storytellers" hosts 40-year publishing veteran Doug Gibson as he weaves reminiscences about such venerable scribes and celebrities as Alice Munro, John Diefenbaker, and Margaret Atwood, shedding light on the writer-editor relationship with wit and decades of experience. "The Mother of All Readings" brings together writers Myrl Coulter, Charlene Diehl, and Marni Jackson to discuss their books on the mother-child relationship, celebrating and exploring maternal affection. Events take place at the Garneau Theatre and the Stanley A. Milner Library, appropriately surrounded by immobile books boiling with jealousy at not being the centre of attention.
