Michael Ondaatje at the Project Bookmark Launch at the Bloor Street Viaduct

Share |

In April 2009, Project Bookmark Canada held its official launch at the Bloor Street Viaduct in Toronto, unveiling a permanent marker with text from Michael Ondaatje's novel, In the Skin of a Lion. Over the next two years, Ontario: Read it Here — a new initiative from Open Book: Ontario, the Creative Book Publishing Program at Humber College and Project Bookmark Canada — will install eight permanent exhibits of literature on the exact geographic sites where literary scenes take place. Four of the exhibits (called "Bookmarks") will be unveiled in September and October, 2010, in the cities of Owen Sound, Toronto and Kingston. Open Book will be mapping the Bookmarks on our new site, www.openbooktoronto.com, which we'll be launching at the end of August. Read more about Ontario: Read it Here.
