On the surface the characters in Higher Ed, Tessa McWatts latest novel, have little in common. Each from a different place, each on a different path and yet, through McWatt’s raw and inviting prose, she reveals how they, and we, are essentially the same. Join McWatt and Spur festival director Helen Walsh for a continental breakfast as they read and discuss from McWatt’s newest 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.
