Arielle's debut book, which speaks eloquently to her experience as a trans Indigenous woman, is now in its second printing. Alicia Elliott's nonfiction book A Mind Spread Out on the Ground (Doubleday Canada) has been a national bestseller. And Terese Marie Mailhot's memoir Heart Berries (Doubleday Canada) was a finalist for the Hilary Weston Writers' Trust of Canada Nonfiction Prize and the Governor General's Literary Award.

A variety of voices from all different perspectives working across genres to create the robust Indigenous lit we all deserve." -Arielle Twist
