    Canada Day at Lougheed House

    Celebrate Canada Day, July 1st, at Lougheed House in their beautiful gardens and greenspaces.

    At 10:30am our head gardener Marie Gattinger will give a free “Blooms of Lougheed House” tour of our gardens, followed by a gardening-focused Q&A session (admission fees apply for the Q&A portion) in our Drawing Room. Marie will discuss her extensive experience with organic gardening, selecting and caring for historical plants, as well as the recent changes in Calgary’s growing zones and the opportunities this has created.

    The Restaurant at Lougheed House will have food and lemonade available for purchase, should you care to throw your own picnic beside one of our gardens.

    From noon-2pm we will be renting (if you have a valid photo i.d.) outdoor lawn games such as croquet, bocce ball and badminton.

    Inside the House (regular admission fees apply – $8.50 adults, $6.50 seniors & students, $5 kids 6-12, $25 family, free for kids under 6 and Cdn. military personnel with CFOne cards) you can enjoy our current exhibition; Cultivating the Landscape: A Social History of Gardening in Calgary.

    House tours, led by our knowledgeable interpreters, will be held throughout the day.

    Shelf Life Books in Calgary, AB, Canada

    How can you think that?!? A Political Bookclub

    A book club for conservatives and liberals who want to get out of their bubbles and bridge the great divide. Buy the book, read it, and come join us for a lively discussion.

    We’ve all felt it: Whether we’ve argued pointlessly with someone on social media, felt our blood pressure rise as we’ve fought over politics with family members, or simply veered delicately away from certain topics, it’s hard to ignore the chasm between those who hold opposing political views. And it feels like it’s getting worse, that politics are getting uglier, and that reasonable discussion is falling by the wayside.

    What can ordinary people do to bridge the great divide? We can read books that smart and reasonable people have writte...n in defense of their views and we can talk about these books with others who may or may not wear the political stripes we do.
    Come to Shelf Life Books for a monthly book club that does just that. Ideally, participants will have read the book assigned for that day, and will come prepared to discuss it. All of the books on our list will be made available by Shelf Life. We will meet from 10 am to noon on the last Saturday of every month.

    The discussions will be led by Julie Sedivy, a local scholar and writer. Julie has taught linguistics and psychology at the University of Calgary and is the lead author of Sold on Language: How Advertisers Talk to You and What This Says About You. Her articles have appeared in magazines such as Politico, Nautilus, and Scientific American, and she has been a frequent guest on radio stations such as CBC and NPR.
