For National Indigenous History Month, we have been highlighting the Indigenous artists whose works we have had the honour of publishing. As today is National Indigenous Peoples Day, we would like to share an excerpt from Itee Pootoogook: Hymns to the Silence, which received the Melva J. Dwyer Award this year. Itee Pootoogook passed away from cancer in 2014, but he contributed to the transformation of the creative traditions inherited from his elders at the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative’s Kinngait Studios.
To celebrate Pride Month, we’ve curated a Queer Lit collection to highlight the work of our LGBTQ2S+ authors and other LGBTQ2S+ stories.
This Pride Month, we want to use our platform to celebrate LGBTQ2S+ authors and queer writing. Join us in doing so by sharing your favourite queer lit or Pride reading suggestion on Instagram using the hashtag #GetQueerLit. You’ll also find some wonderful reading suggestions from our authors right here.
Father’s Day is around the corner, and we realize this may be a challenging time for some. So, whether you’re celebrating your biological father, or someone who has assumed a fatherly role in your life, we’ve curated a collection of gift ideas for this celebratory day.
As you may know, George Little passed away this May. A beloved father and husband, George will also be remembered as a teacher, a leader of the New Brunswick New Democratic Party, a social justice advocate, and an author.
In 1990, we published George’s short story collection, The Many Deaths of George Robertson, which examines the lives of parents, siblings, friends, and politicians. In celebration of George Little’s accomplishments, we have selected a short story from this publication to share.
