Our friend Miranda Hill arrived in Woody Point today! Miranda is a wonderful writer and is here to read from her new book, Sleeping Funny at Writers at Woody Point. We're really excited to read the book and looking forward to having a sneaky preview at this weeks reading!
Here's a picture of Miranda looking lovely here at Galliott Studios
And here's a link to her website. It's great! http://mirandahill.com/
Miranda is also the founder and executive director of Project Bookmark. We LOVE this project and think you would too. Project Bookmark Canada installs plaques (called “Bookmarks”) bearing text from stories and poems in the exact physical locations where literary scenes are set. The nationally registered charitable organization is building a cross-Canada network of site-specific literary installations that will allow Canadians and visitors to read their way right across the country.
We stole that explanation from their website, which you can see here http://projectbookmarkcanada.ca/
Woody Point will be graced with the first Bookmark outside of Ontario, and the eleventh Bookmark overall. This Bookmark will be for Al Pittman's poem 'The Sea Breeze Lounge' and will be unveiled as part of Writers at Woody Point on Thursday 23rd August at 12.30pm on the Woody Point waterfront.

We hope to see you there!
