This month, we feature Amin Karim's recently published novel, The Nightingale Sings. Not only will the author will read, he will sign copies after the event! Our readers this month are all brand new to the flywheel stage – Karim's glow meets the effervescence of Alyson Fortowsky, the luminosity of Helen Hajnoczky, and Makyee Mak's luster for a magnificent new show under Prairie Ink's tasteful track lighting.

PLUS: Don't forget the flywheel prize draw, and the flywheel limited edition posters! Not only will attendees get to hear top-notch literature, but they'll also have the chance to win swag from filling Station magazine and McNally Robinson Booksellers.

Every month since November 2003, filling Station magazine's flywheel reading series has brought poetry, prose, music, lectures and performance to the heart of downtown Calgary. It's a place for first-time readers to share the stage with professional authors, for Calgary audiences to see their favourite writers alongside the next generation of literary superstars.
