LitFest invites authors to tell true stories about what they know and challenge us with their ideas through immersive readings, panels, materclasses, and memoir hours. Originally organized as a book fair by the Alberta Book Fair Society, LitFest has grown to an 11-day festival, with the addition of a 3-day podcast festival from October 1-3.

STARFest 2020 (October 6 - 28)See more

STARFest is the St. Albert Readers' Festival, and it's all about bringing readers and authors together – supporting diverse and exciting writing voices, and the booksellers and publishers who bring their work to you, the readers. All STARFest authors will present online this year, though they will continue to investigate the possibility of incorporating in-library experiences, depending on the situation in the coming months. View the full list of authors and events on their website here.
