As Calgary’s Poet Laureate I’m proud to be a part of a new initiative in partnership with Calgary Reads and their Little Free Library PassportFullSizeRender FullSizeRender[3] project.CRaWDWJUsAA5gOP


Are you a fan of Little Free Libraries? Do you regularly take – or leave – a book at these little wooden houses scattered throughout our neighborhoods?

Now you can become a Well-Traveled Reader and earn a badge of honour!

Visit our Passport Office (at Calgary Reads) and pick up your FREE Passport. Then with family, friends or your special group visit the 14 listed, unique Little Free Libraries (reader citizenship posts!) in Calgary. Use the stamp inside each Little Free Library to stamp your Passport on the corresponding page. Return to the Passport Office with at least 10 stamps in your Passport and receive a custom ‘Well-Traveled Reader’ badge to sew onto your jacket, backpack or cap. This project is an exciting collaboration with Calgary’s poet laureate Derek Beaulieu.


The Little Free Library Passport features my visual poetry on every page — and if you visit the LFL locations around the city you can collect a series of stamps for your passport…
