Why we love this book: It's sparkling, it's quietly funny, and it's a total force of a poetry collection by Canada's Parliamentary Poet Laureate Louise Bernice Halfe - Sky Dancer. awâsis - kinky and dishevelled features the unapologetic awâsis as she reveals herself through shapeshifting and multiple genders, sharing his journey of mishaps with humour and spirituality.

Why we love this book: In his debut collection, Tiohtià:ke-based poet David Bradford crafts a deeply personal collection of poems that put family trauma, racial identity, and memory in dialogue with one another. Prose poems, verse, erasure, and photographs make up the collection's hybrid quality—these poems create a vibrant snapshot of a troubled family with all their complexities.

Why we love this book: A posthumously published collection from Governor General's Literary Award-winning poet Don Domanski, Fetishes of the Floating World is perception-expanding environmental poetry and metaphysics packaged in a lyric whole. Continuing Domanski’s lifelong exploration of mystical ecology, the book explores the sacred dimensions of what-is and to become more intimate with the strangeness that haunts our lively, changeable world.
