Shadows and Light

“It was the night I lost a patient who I thought would survive and shared a terminal diagnosis with a man not much older than myself.

Truth and Reconciliation

Goose Lane Editions will be closing our Fredericton office and taking down our website on September 30, 2022, in order to observe the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Our storefront will be closed, our website will be deactivated, and our social media will be dedicated to sharing Indigenous voices. If you wish to support any of our Indigenous authors, please do so before September 30: our Indigenous titles can be found here.

Goose Lane Editions is located on the unceded territory of the Wəlastəkwiyik whose ancestors along with the Mi'kmaq and Peskotomuhkati Nations signed Peace and Friendship Treaties with the British Crown in the 1700s. These treaties did not deal with the surrendering of land, instead, they recognized Indigenous sovereignty and established rules for an ongoing relationship between nations.
