From the creator of Bookworm comes a joyously-poignant healing spell, and spoken-word love letter to the books we’ve loaned and lost, and the secret paths they travel in the world to find us. Monologue, memoir, feast of words; a deep-hearted treat for bookworms or for anyone who's ever lost someone or something they loved.

From the Winnipeg Free Press, Winnipeg Fringe 2023: Toronto singer-songwriter Corin Raymond returns to the fringe with another stellar one-man show, again revolving around his love of reading. A decade ago his solo spoken-word show, Bookworm, delved into stories read to him by his father as a child; Bookmarks explores the many books he’s loved, loaned out, lost and (sometimes) found again while on the road. The 60-plus-minute monologue is broken up into five- or six-minute stories — almost like an album, or chapters of a book — with Raymond fondly (and sometimes funnily) reminiscing about books that have helped him through difficult times, including coping with the loss of his mothers (to understand why it’s plural, you’ll have to see the show). Raymond’s got a beautiful, poetic delivery and dynamic stage presence that works brilliantly with his reminiscences — it all pulls at the heartstrings in a big way. ★★★★ 1/2
