Darwin's Moving Calgary Launch

Event Date: 
Oct 3, 2017
The Palomino - 109 7th Avenue SW Calgary, Alberta

Join Taylor Lambert as he launches his latest book, Darwin's Moving. The celebration starts at 7 pm with a reading followed by a Q&A and book signing!

About the book:

In a city known for wealth and prosperity, the divide between haves and have-nots is rarely clearer than on moving day, when those two worlds come together in intimate fashion. Violent ex-cons and drug addicts are invited into spacious homes, entrusted with the care and transport of the possessions of the upper classes — a unique bridging of two normally segregated worlds.

Darwin’s Moving is an intriguing and affecting exploration of class divides by a journalist and former mover. Taylor Lambert takes us behind the scenes of a familiar industry that is almost completely undocumented in Canadian literature to reveals the cycles of poverty and addiction that ensare its workers. This is the Other Calgary, a world populated by transient men and women struggling to survive in a boomtown's shadow.

About the author:

Taylor Lambert was born in Regina, Saskatchewan and eventually settled in Calgary, Alberta. He is a journalist who has published three previous books, including Leaving Moose Jaw and the Calgary bestseller Rising: Stories of the 2013 Alberta Flood. To pay for tuition and later to offset his freelance writing, Taylor worked moving furniture, which led to the idea to write a book centred on the moving industry: Darwin's Moving. Taylor currently resides in Calgary.
