08/01/2024 (Calgary): W.O. Mitchell Lived Here

Thursday, August 1, 7 to 8:30 pm

Roxboro Park (opposite 3031 Roxboro Glen Road, SW)

The celebrated author W. O. Mitchell (1914-1998) spent the last three decades of his life in Roxboro, writing seven novels and leading a lively literary life. Join Calgary historian Shaun Hunter and special guest speakers in the park across from Mitchell’s house to share stories about his life, work, and the neighbourhood he put on the page. No registration required but lawn chairs highly recommended and Mitchell memories warmly welcomed.

This event is part of this summer’s Historic Calgary Week.

We will have copies of our 75th Anniversary Edition of Who Has Seen the Wind for sale.
