Literary Landmarks…the intersection of notable authors, their compelling stories and the unique geography of our communities. This project, launched in March of 2015, is a partnership of Vancouver Public Library and BC BookWorld, with generous contributions of Dr. Yosef Wosk and the Vancouver Public Library Foundation.
There are 26 permanent Literary Landmark plaques installed on lampposts across the city, with additional authors to be added in 2016. If you would like to suggest an author for a future Literary Landmark, please contact the Vancouver Public Library: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 604-331-3603.
“This is progress as much as skyscrapers and high property values.”

The collection of landmarks was curated by Alan Twigg, publisher of BC BookWorld. Alan also wrote the text for all but one of the landmarks.
