That's right: we each donated $20 to Project Bookmark Canada, a charity that marks the places where real and imagined landscapes meet by placing "Bookmarks" -- text from Canadian stories and poems -- in the exact, physical locations where literary scenes take place. Project Bookmark is hard at work building a network of hundreds of Bookmarks around the country, so that residents and visitors can read their way across Canada. With 12 Bookmarks already in place -- Michael Ondaatje and Ken Babstock in Toronto, Wayson Choy in Vancouver, Al Pittman in Newfoundland -- the Project needs your donation today to keep on growing.
What's so special about today? Make a donation now and your name will be entered into a draw to win not one but two Canadian books:Glimpse (poems) by George Murray and How To Get Along With Women (stories) by Elisabeth de Mariaffi. That's a whole lot of bedtime reading, in support of a great, national project.
