Ontario’s Entertainment Creative Cluster Partnerships Fund supports Ontario: Read it Here!

Project Bookmark Canada is an organization that exists to “mark the places where the real and imagined landscapes meet.” This is done by installing a Bookmark, a poster-sized ceramic plaque with text from a story or poem, in the exact physical location where the literary scene takes place. With Open Book: Ontario (an initiative of the Organization of Book Publishers of Ontario) and Humber College Creative Book Publishing Program, Project Bookmark Canada created a partnership for the Ontario: Read It Here initiative, which received funding support from the OMDC through the Entertainment and Creative Cluster Partnerships Fund. Four new installations of Bookmarks were installed recently, one each in Midland, Port Colborne, Hamilton and Mississauga.

The recently installed Bookmarks are:

“Song for the Field Behind Mississauga Valley Public School” from the Trillium Award-winning Tiny, Frantic, Stronger by Jeff Latosik, published by Insomniac Press, bookmarked in Mississauga, in the public space behind Valleys Senior Public School; Jeff Latoski and Miranda Hill
