Today's the day to get your CanLit on! Project Bookmark Canada is kicking off our summer-long campaign, Bookmark Summer Reads, encouraging our supporters to help us build Canada's literary trail by making suggestions for potential Bookmarks. Everything you need to know about Bookmark Summer Reads can be found here. Don't forget to follow us on Twitter and Instagram, and use the hashtag #BookmarkSummerReads. Every suggestion made is a chance to win one of our weekly prizes.
Our first Bookmark Summer Reads theme is Planes, Trains and Automobiles. For many, summer is a time of travelling, and often the getting there is an adventure unto itself. We're looking for literary scenes from fiction or poetry set on planes, trains or automobiles. Or scenes set at the train station, bus station, airport, or even a gas station. We encourage readers to go outside the box and think of other ways to travel too. Maybe a character canoes to their destination. Maybe they take a hot air balloon. We want you to be creative, and to have fun with the theme. Of course, if you have suggestions that fall outside the theme, we want to hear those too!
Thank you for reading along with us this summer, and for helping us continue to build Canada's literary trail.
