Do you love the written word?

Do you have a spare moment or two today?

Today is the launch of the 2010 Calgary Wordfest, bringing readers and writers together for 15 years. The six-day event features more than 70 writers at more than 60 events across the city.

There will be many chances to meet your favourite authors and talk shop, or simply enjoy the written word during the festival this week.

WordFeast also launches tonight, bringing together literary minds for a night of dinner and drinks — the best thing on the menu is always conversation.
