Move over, Juno celebrations… writing lives here, too! Join long-time literary players flywheel and Single Onion reading series Thursday, April 3, as they partner to show off the overlap between writing and music! As always, we are proud participants in First Thursday, hosted by the Olympic Plaza Cultural District!

This month, we feature Ottawa's rob mclennan, current writer-in-residence at the University of Alberta. mclennan appears for Single Onion under the sponsorship of the Canada Council for the Arts. Onion Paul Marshall will join him on the McNally Robinson stage.

flywheel supplies the musical/literary talent this month, with Andrew Wedderburn of Hot Little Rocket fame heating up the stage, and local cult faves the Jagatha Christies bringing acoustic marvels to round out our unique celebration of Music Lives Here.

We all sing in the key of c-minor at the news of McNally Robinson's closure. They have supported the flywheel reading series since our inception in November 2003. Their loss is a serious blow to the Calgary literary community.

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