This event is celebrates the unveiling of Alberta’s first “bookmark” installation joining Project Bookmark Canada’s CanLit Trail.

The Calgary Bookmark will honour Rosemary Griebel’s poem, “Walking with Walt Whitman Through Calgary’s Eastside on a Winter Day” from her book, "Yes." and set in the city's historic and dynamic East Village. Come hear Rosemary read her poem and join in a guided write-your-own poetry walk.



Project Bookmark Canada & Loft 112

Project Bookmark Canada is a one-of-kind, Canadian cultural innovation. Project Bookmark's vision is to blaze a Canadian literary trail connecting hundreds of Bookmarks in cities, towns and other areas across the country.

Loft 112 is a creative hive where ideas are given space to develop, a place where established and emerging writers, readers, artists and poets are supported, a place where unheard voices are given a platform, and a place of collaboration.
