Penumbrag #6: Boomark News
Posted by John Flood on
Having written about the idea of “Readerity” in Then & Now: On the Celebration of First Books … & Writing About, I was invited by Dan and Marlene MacDonald, the proprietors of Bookmark in Charlottetown and Halifax, to develop an annual series to be known as Bookmark Readerity Series: Readers & Writers on Books & Reading. We launched the series in the downtown libraries of both cities in early November. Copies of the booklets are available at no cost at both Bookmark locations while supply lasts.
Drop in at Bookmark in Charlottetown or Halifax for your free copies of Readerity …
