The first Bookmark in Nova Scotia will be unveiled on October 1, 2015. A Bookmark bearing the final passage from Alistair MacLeod's internationally acclaimed novel No Great Mischief will find its home at the Visitor Information Centre in Port Hastings, Cape Breton. Alistair's son, writer and teacher Alexander MacLeod, will read the selection from the novel that day. Literary celebrations on the island continue on October 2, with the Cabot Trail Writers' Festival.
Local response has been enthusiastic, and we hope to see many readers at the launch.
Thank you to the Good Foundation Inc., the Cabot Trail Writers' Festival, Destination Cape Breton, the Government of Nova Scotia and the many groups and individuals who are contributing funds and energy to make this Bookmark possible. Fundraising for this initiative is still in progress. To make a donation to this installation, visit our Build a Bookmark page or contact us directly.
