Hey everyone, next week I’m heading to Alberta for hijinks in Calgary, Banff and Edmonton. If you’re in the area, I hope you can come by, take in some peep and say hi. And of course check out all the great authors who are coming from around the country and the world to read at Wordfest!

 Here are the details of all the events:

Hal at Wordfest

Calgary: Word of Mouth event. This is a spoken word type event. I’m a bit of an odd man out here, but it’ll fun anyway and we’ll make it work somehow! Plus the other performers are really interesting. Thursday October 15. 9:30pm-11pm. Vertigo Theatre Centre Studio. With Elizabeth Bachinsky, Kris Demeanor, Billeh Nickerson, Alexis O’Hara, Roland Pemberton and me.

Calgary: For a Nickel I Will. 12–1pm, October 14. Downtown Calgary mystery location. What will you tell me for a nickel? I’ll be in an as yet undisclosed downtown Calgary location collecting and displaying secrets from passerbys. I’ll be posting them to my twitter and blog account, as well as to the Wordfest site, and displaying them on a big screen as people wander by. Prizes and other enticements. Not sure when they are going to release the location. Check the wordfest site day of!

Banff: Dine and Spill. 12:15–1:15. Lunch at the Banff Center with me! At the Banff Centre Vistas Dining Room. Basically you eat and, one-by-one, tell me your secrets. The secrets will be displayed on a big screen in random order. I will discuss your secrets, my own secrets, and the general need of humanity to share share share and overshare.

Banff: From Pop to Peep. October 18. 5–6pm. Banff Centre, Rice Studio JPL Building. This is a presentation by me on the rise of peep culture. It’s basically as many ideas about what Peep is and how it works and where it came from as I can pack in. Plus questions.
