Conducting School Visits in Alberta - Saturday at 10 AM in the Canmore Room

Presenters: Suzy Vadori, Adam Dreece, Shirlee Smith Matheson and Faye Reineberg Holt

The presenters will discuss authors and other sources to help you discover the past of our province and region. What makes Alberta’s history fascinating? Is it fascinating? What does everyone know or think they know about Alberta? What can we still learn about Alberta and its people?

Historical Research - Saturday at 2 PM in the Fireside Room

Erin Lindsey, Faye Reineberg Holt, Bret Cousins, Therese Greenwood
So, you love historical writing! Where do you go to obtain the information necessary for historical writing, fiction or non-fiction? How do you gain access to the wealth of material available? How much research is needed before starting a book? How do you avoid information dumps in stories? Where can you take liberties? When is it time to stop research and write?


Anyone who has blogged knows that it is hard to get other writing/work done if you are working on a blog every week. However, despite whatever changes develop in the future, I am reactivating my blog. If you enjoy rodeo and/or fair season, and if you want special gifts for you volunteers or others who help make these great events happen, check out the link You will discover my option for saying thanks.
