Happy National Poetry Month (NPM)! We’ve got our fists up with our series
Poets Resist dedicated to poetry as a form of resistance. Every day on the blog we’re featuring a poet whose work explores one of these: colonialism and violence, homophobia and transphobia, environmental destruction, and/or the !@#$% patriarchy. (But even though it's NPM, we haven't ghosted on our other books; they all get love.) Scroll down for the rest of our bookish news and recommendations!

What Else We're Reading
We're reading Marianne Apostolides'
Deep Salt Water from BookThug not only because it was named one of the most anticipated books of spring 2017 by CBC Books, Quill and Quire, and Toronto Star, or because of the stunning artwork, or because Marianne won the 2017 KM Hunter Artist Award for Literature, but those reasons help.
