Wordfest presents: Omar El Akkad

This event will be held at Memorial Park Library

At Wordfest and the Calgary Public Library’s Engagement Lab at Memorial Park Library, Omar El Akkad presents an audacious and powerful debut novel: a second American Civil War, a devastating plague, and one family caught deep in the middle — a story that asks what might happen if America were to turn its most devastating policies and deadly weapons upon itself.
