Books we recommend from J. Gordon Shillingford for your giftee to unwrapWhy we love this book: Falen Johnson’s dark comedy is about two cousins who grew up on the same reserve, but are disconnected when one of them leaves for the city after a family tragedy. When the two reunite in Toronto, they must learn to reconnect with each other and their culture. While the play addresses some tough issues, it’s ultimately a celebration of kinship, connection, and the importance of empathy. Read a full description of Two Indians here.Where do I find the book?

Why we love this book: It’s on-the-button funny, it’s heartwarming, and it’s very Canadian. When a group of newcomers to Canada—including a Chinese medical student, a Jamaican Tim Horton’s manager, an Indian father of three, and a 17-year-old Syrian refugee—sign up for a Learn to Curl class in their small-town, they begin a chain of events that have them facing off against local prejudice to become a true team.
