VOICES

VOICES

VOICES focuses on Atlantic Canadian authors, their homegrown expertise and lived experiences. We particularly want to highlight and amplify traditionally underrepresented voices from our region. This fall, we’ll feature the work of Black authors and publishers, who are telling their stories with pride in their communities and speaking truths that need to be heard. We are proud to partner with the Delmore Buddy Day Learning Institute, which is governed by Black professionals for Black learners, to present these authors and their words to you.
