There are many great ways to spend a late weekend morning, but we especially recommend one: enjoying a delicious continental breakfast in the stunning Gardiner Café and listening to an author read from a freshly published book.

Join Shyam Selvadurai as he reads from his fourth and most recent novel, The Hungry Ghosts, and then discusses his work with Spur’s Festival Director Helen Walsh.

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.
