Our Charlottetown location has just been recently renovated and upgraded. We now have more space and a beautiful new look to our store, and we’re just a few doors up from our original location on Queen St.
In addition to books, we also offer Art Supplies, Hydrographic Charts/Tide Tables, and Stationery. Come on in and see us in downtown Charlottetown, or for our friends from away, send in a note or your special orders from the website.
Hope to see you there soon!
DAVID DENBY, staff writer and former film critic at the New Yorker and the author of LIT UP One Reporter. Three Schools. Twenty-four Books That Can Change Lives is coming to Bookmark
LIT UP is a dramatic narrative that traces awkward and baffled beginnings but also exciting breakthroughs and the emergence of pleasure in reading. In a sea of bad news about education and the fate of the book, Denby reaffirms the power of great teachers and the importance of an inspiration provided by great books. A delight in itself, LIT UP will make readers fall in love with reading all over again, and send them rushing to their nearest bookstore or library.
Praise for LIT UP
“Part literary meditation, part case study of exemplary teaching, LIT UP traces a diverse group of adolescents as they are drawn into the ‘character-forming experience of reading difficult books’ by their ardent and caring (and, as duly noted, union) teachers….Denby’s engrossing report from the field has a narrative arc of its own: his story concerns how disaffected and/or disadvantaged high schoolers can become thoughtful, independent readers when their teachers have the freedom to construct their own curriculum so that students connect emotionally with what they read.” —Booklist, Starred review
“A readable work recommended to anyone who agrees that reading widely is vital to a productive, fulfilling life.” —Library Journal
“Energetic and engaged”—Publishers Weekly
“An upbeat portrait of fine teachers and the students they inspire.” —Kirkus Reviews
