Will Starling, the sophomore novel of award-winning producer, screenwriter and novelist, Ian Weir, takes readers on roaring ride through 19th-century London. A place of charming horrors where the living are fascinated by the dead, the dead don’t stay that way, and no one is quite who they seem.

Join Weir and Eric Volmers of the Calgary Herald for a continental breakfast as they read and discuss from Weirs’s second novel.

Spur is a national festival of politics, art and ideas and is a catalyst for change in Canada.

Through nationally relevant and locally nuanced discussions, presentations and performances, the festival seeks to spur its participants to action on issues affecting Canadians. Feisty, multi-partisan, forward-looking, and solution-driven, this national railway of ideas will provide Canada with vital new cultural infrastructure for the 21st century.

Founded in 2013, the festival has already grown from three to five Canadian cities, with plans for further expansion across the country. Produced by the Literary Review of Canada in partnership with Diaspora Dialogues, Spur prides itself on its community partnerships, cultural connections and a focus on accessibility and diversity.
