Sophie joins “Reading Lights”
The newest round of reading plaques is up in Vancouver neighbourhoods. Delighted to see Waiting for Sophie, illustrated by Carmen Mok, featured in Nelson Park, my childhood neck of the woods.
(For Vancouverites on a Reading Lights expedition: It’s across the street from mid-1100 block Comox St.)
Intended to spark an interest in stories and reading, the program features excerpts of books and illustrations on lamp posts across the city for all to enjoy.
Update: Ben has found his lamp post. He’s in Gaston Park in Vancouver, at the corner of Tyne and Crowley. Go visit him! For a map of all forty installations throughout the city see pwp.vpl.ca
