Salt Fish Girl by Larissa Lai: The mesmerizing tale of an ageless female character who shifts shape and form through time and place. Told in the beguiling voice of a narrator who is fish, snake, girl, and woman - all of whom must struggle against adversity for survival - the novel is set alternately in nineteenth-century China and in a futuristic Pacific Northwest.

I’m Afraid of Men by Vivek Shraya: The book Vanity Fair calls “Cultural Rocket Fuel”. A journey from camouflage to a riot of colour and a blueprint for how we might cherish all that makes us different and conquer all that makes us afraid. A trans artist explores how masculinity was imposed on her as a boy and continues to haunt her as a girl--and how we might reimagine gender for the twenty-first century.

Sôhkêyihta - The Poetry of Sky Dancer Louise Bernice Halfe: Searing poems written across the expanse of Halfe’s career, aimed at helping readers move forward from the darkness into a place of healing. Halfe addresses, incorporates, and pushes back against silence, and suggests that her work is an act of bearing witness – what Kwagiulth scholar Sarah Hunt identifies as making Indigenous lives visible.
