Pages on Kensington 1135 Kensington Road NW Calgary. One of the best, if not the best independent bookstores in Calgary. The first Thursday of the month sees Simone the owner allowing Fly Wheel to invade her upper loft to bring their special brand of spoken-word to the populace. It is a great place to present or launch a project from and that must be why Ryan enjoys the podium, Fly Wheel speaks from. Fly Wheel is also the reading series responsible for the collaborative efforts creating The Filling Station magazine, a very nice read. However for us alliterates one's who like to hear whats here, this is Fly Wheel unlike the other venues this is a presentation of invited emerging and accomplished poets.
