Event description

Description

Project Bookmark Canada is pleased to announce an inaugural Bookmark for Halifax, which will coincide with commemorations of the 100th anniversary of the Halifax Explosion — Barometer Rising by Hugh MacLennan.

Published in 1941, MacLennan's first novel is a compelling romance set against the horrors of wartime and the catastrophic Halifax Explosion of December 6, 1917. The biggest human-made explosion in the pre-atomic era inspired a brilliant novel published in 1941 and, in 2017, provides an opportunity to gather and reflect on this event of great significance to Canadians.

The public is warmly invited to the official launch of the plaques on
Tuesday, December 5, 2 p.m., opposite the main entrance at the top of the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site, 5425 Sackville Street.
