Women Writing, Women Reading

There is a fascinating conference on Women Writing & Reading being held in Edmonton, Alberta this weekend, May 4-6/07. In cooperation with the Bruce Peel Special Collections Library of the University of Alberta, they have curated a Virtual Exhibition You must look at this one; it is amazingly interactive, with the ability to see selected pages within each book, closeups of gorgeous bindings, and text about each book, as well as narratives on selected topics like artist's books, travel literature, women & religion, or a look at the Hogarth Press.
Here is what one of my favourite bits of Canadiana looks like:
