Our Canadian Bookcase Quilt Unveiling


Jun 15




Richmond Public Library, Minoru Gate, Richmond, BC, Canada Event Website

Together in partnership with the Textile Arts Guild of Richmond (TAGOR) and the Richmond Media Lab, Richmond Public Library is pleased to announce a unique commemorative project that you can contribute to!


TAGOR received a City of Richmond Canada 150 grant for a one-of-a-kind project called Our Canadian Bookcase in which, together with the community, expert TAGOR quilters will create a hanging quilt featuring 150 Canadian authors. All 150 authors represented in the hanging quilt will be nominated by the public. The finished hanging quilt will be a work of art, recognizing great Canadian writers and representing our community’s favourite storytellers.


This hanging quilt will be unveiled to the public at a special event on Thursday, June 15th at the Brighouse branch, and in the months to follow, it will travel throughout the community at a series of viewing events.
