Event Date:

The Almanac - 10351 82 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 1Z9

Join Taylor Lambert as he launches his latest book, Darwin's Moving, with special guest reader Omar Mouallem (Inside the Inferno). The celebration starts at 7 pm with readings followed by a Q&A and book signing!

About the books:

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 reveal 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.
