Ottawa’s Rockcliffe Bookfair

Once a year, usually in early November, cars line both sides of Springfield Road in Ottawa.

Many of them will leave filled with books. The Rockcliffe Bookfair is known not only for the quality and quantity of books for sale, but also for its great prices. More than half I’d say, of its approximately thirty thousand books go for $1.

Listen here to my conversation of a year or two ago with Chairperson Maggie Knaus.

In addition to helping organize scores of volunteers, and spending hundreds of hours on Bookfair throughout the year, Maggie is also a talented photographer.

I happen to be the proud owner of this piece…can anyone guess where it was taken?

    Well, it’s a Turkish bath yes, but in which city?
