If you’re participating in the Women’s March or watching from afar and need a lit break, you’ve come to the right place. Apropos of certain events, we went angst-y this week with our book recommendations. Get those and more, below.
~ If you’re a regular on our blog, you’ve probably already seen Forget-Me-Not where we get historical with a feature book about under-represented moments of Canada’s distant and near past. And if you have no idea what we’re talking about,
get caught up! (And check out our

ALU Sales Manager Tan recently read Johnnie Walker's Redheaded Stepchild (Playwrights Canada Press) and had this to say:
If you dug into Raziel Reid's WhenEverything Feels Like the Movies (Arsenal Pulp) a couple of years ago, pre- or post-controversy, then Redheaded Stepchild will feel like poking through the childhood photos of a familiar friend. Nicholas is an adorkable teenager, which made this short play a fast, thoroughly enjoyable read.
