Our Literary Landmarks: Marlatt, Rule, and Bowering

Spotted! Daphne Marlatt has made her mark on the south side of the Burrard Bridge

A new plaque has been posted on the northwest corner of Burrard Street and Cornwall Avenue in Vancouver, BC – on the Kitsilano side of the Burrard Bridge. The plaque, which is one of 26 Literary Landmarks posted around Metro Vancouver, celebrates poet Daphne Marlatt and her contributions to the literature of the region.

Other Talon authors have made their mark as well; a plaque celebrating George Bowering is posted at the former location of the Cecil Hotel on Granville Street downtown, and another celebrating Jane Rule is posted near her former residence in West Point Grey.

The landmarks are all in place as of this month, and represent the efforts of the Vancouver Public Library and BC Bookworld.
