For National Poetry Month, the Writers’ Guild of Alberta celebrates the poet who put the country of Canada into words like no other has before or since. The boxcar riding, beer drinking, A-Frame building, booming voiced, lanky, obstreperous Al Purdy. They’ll be showing the film Al Purdy Was Here, and the events also features live performances by Kat Cameron, Jason Lee Norman, and Thomas Trofimuk as musicians and artists come together to tell the tale of Al Purdy.

We’ll be selling books by and about Al Purdy in the lobby.
