Project Bookmark Canada is a national, charitable organization that places text from stories and poems in the exact, physical locations where literary scenes are set.

The mandate is to establish a permanent and prominent presence for literature set in Canada--enhancing Canada's reputation as a nation of storytellers; expanding the readership for fiction and poetry set in Canada; and encouraging residents and visitors to see our literary landscapes, adding to local and national tourism.

Alistair MacLeod's No Great Mischief is one of the most frequent requests they hear at Project Bookmark Canada, and the affection for Alistair MacLeod and his fiction come from all over Canada, and beyond.

Project Bookmark Canada is pleased to announce that we will be creating a Bookmark for No Great Mischief in Cape Breton.
