Celebrate the unveiling of the first Project Bookmark plaque in Nova Scotia, which features a passage from Alistair MacLeod’s No Great Mischief, at this evening of Cape Breton music and readings from MacLeod’s work.
The No Great Mischief bookmark will be unveiled in Port Hastings earlier in the day. That evening, readers across Canada will #RaiseAGlass4Alistair to mark the occasion, with Shelagh Rogers serving as the Twitter toastmaster. If you are in Halifax, join us for an in-person evening of drink, words and music. If you live elsewhere, raise a glass in your own town and join the Twitter toast!
