And the bookmark goes to....
Rachael Preston, for The Fishers of Paradise!
Project Bookmark Canada has honoured Rachael Preston with Bookmark #16, to be unveiled this June under the second rail bridge along Hamilton's Desjardins Trail. The marker will feature an excerpt from Preston's novel The Fishers of Paradise, which takes place in the boathouse community that populated the area in the 1930s.
The novel won the Hamilton Arts Council's Kerry Schooley Award, given to the book that best celebrates and evokes the City of Hamilton, for its original publication. Wolsak and Wynn will publish a new edition of the book later this spring.
Congratulations, Rachael, on this well-deserved success!
