One Book, One Calgary: Celebrate the Awesome
Not to brag, but Calgary is Awesome has it right – we are one awesome city. For their 100th birthday, the Calgary Public Library wants to celebrate that awesomeness with the third annual One Book, One Calgary. The book: Neil Pasricha’s The Book of Awesome.
One Book, One Calgary has two aims this year – to get everyone in Calgary reading together and celebrating how awesome our city is. The initiative is basically a city-wide book club – bringing together a huge group of people over one topic. The book, which initially began as a blog, showcases the little things that make life awesome, and how sharing them can make it even better.
November’s month of awesome will be kicked off with a launch party this Friday, Nov. 2nd, at the Central Library’s John Dutton Theatre. Calgary’s Poet Laureate, Kris Demeanor, will kick off the evening with a special performance, followed by several notable Calgarians talking about what makes our city so great.
