Launched today is the Vancouver Public Library “Literary Landmarks” project.
At the crack of ten-thirty this morning a crack team of librarians and special guests braved cloudy skies and raindrops to be present at the unveiling of the plaque dedicated to Eric Nicol, which is on a lamp standard on the north side of the VPL main branch at 350 West Georgia Street. A couple of dozen other plaques featuring other writers are already in place around town.
The unveiling was followed by a reception in the library attended by special guests including some of the people getting plaqued: George Bowering, Andreas Schroeder, Evelyn Lau, Daphne Marlatt and Sadhu Binning, among others.
Complete details on the project can be found here:
Filed in “Good Ideas”. More plaques will be added here and there as time goes on. Rain or shine.
