Toronto LAKESHORE, Ontario

Love Enough, by Dionne Brand

Help us to build a new Bookmark for Toronto  for Love Enough, marking a passage set on the Lakeshore in South Parkdale, to be installed later this fall.

A recipient of this year's Order of Canada, Brand is one of this nation’s most accomplished contemporary writers. 

“From our acclaimed poet and novelist: a gem of a novel that sizzles about love — between lovers, between friends, and for the places we live in — and pays homage to each moment of experience.”
Love Enough Publisher, Vintage Canada

Calgary’s East Village, Alberta

“Walking with Walt Whitman Through Calgary’s Eastside on a Winter Day,” by Rosemary Griebel

In Autumn 2019, Rosemary Griebel’s poem will be unveiled as Alberta’s first Bookmark on the Canadian Literary Trail, at
Loft 112, 8th Avenue SE, a literary and creative hub. “Walking with Walt Whitman Through Calgary’s Eastside on a Winter Day” is published in Griebel’s poetry collection Yes (Frontenac House, 2011).

“When we first heard about Project Bookmark Canada and the Ondaatje Bookmark, and its work of commemorating locations where literary works are set, we were excited by the idea. Canadian landscapes, cities, and towns truly are the stuff of great literature.  Project Bookmark makes that point by physically marking the places that have touched the hearts and imaginations of writers and readers.”
