About Shelf Life Books
A thoughtfully curated independent bookstore in Calgary, promoting Canadian authors and going beyond the mass market.
Our carefully selected books are thought-provoking, well-written, stimulating, and literary.
Our focus is on the kind of writing that doesn’t insult your intelligence.
We love to host events for local authors, writing groups, book clubs, publishers, and any group interested in the arts, creativity, and the cultural conversation.
Our goal is to increase awareness of and readership for Canadian writers, and for books slightly outside the mainstream.
