On Tuesday, April 2 I’ll be in Calgary for a Wordfest satellite event – and there’s a twist: in the tradition of something old and something new, you’re invited to come wearing attire from your special day. Yes, it’s a rare opportunity to dust off your own wedding dress, bridesmaid dress, dinner jacket, or favourite formal outfit. Hosted by Jenny Howe of CBC Radio’s Homestretch, this event includes an on-stage interview and audience Q&A, followed by a book signing. Cash bar available. (And as much as I’d love to wear my own wedding dress I don’t have a hope of fitting into it – so I’ll be wearing my fanciest cocktail dress AND a royal-wedding-worthy fascinator!) Tickets are available here.
