LRC Literary Review of Canada ends four-year-old Spur festival
LRC, the Literary Review of Canada, is after four years discontinuing Spur, its national festival of politics, art and ideas "due to financial considerations". Spur was launched on the watch of former publisher Helen Walsh, who left the publication last fall. LRC thereafter undert00k a strategic review, at least one outcome of which is the end of Spur.
"We want to thank you for joining us at these events and helping to shape important and dynamic Canadian conversations," [said a note from Sarmishta Subramanian, editor in chief of LRC.] "We continue to explore these issues in the pages of Spur's sister organization, the Literary Review of Canada, an award-winning monthly magazine about books, culture, politics and ideas."
