This monthly reading series features local and touring writers. Tonight’s instalment is headlined by Calgary spoken word artist Jen Kunlire (pictured). Later this month (May 21, to be exact) Kunlire will part of a literary event called Monday @ the Mike that will be held at the Fainting Goat Restaurant at 8 p.m. as part of the Cathedral Village Arts Festival.

Joining Kunlire at Vertigo tonight will be Keith Foster, Jamella Hagen and Claire Tacon. Music will be provided by Friendly Folk. It all gets going at Crave Kitchen + Wine Bar at 7:30 p.m.
