WHY WE NEED A RESILIENCE REBELLION . 14
Survivor memoirs have well-deserved spaces
on bestseller lists and feminists’ bookshelves.
Much of the appeal lies in their depictions
of resilience—the way women survive and
sometimes thrive in the aftermath. Julie Lalonde’s
memoir, Resilience Is Futile: The Life and Death
and Life of Julie S. Lalonde, challenges this notion.
by Renée Bondy
 
OUT FROM THE MARGINS …………………..18
Muslim authors of young adult fiction are
creating stories about coming of age in Canada
for girls navigating both traditional and North
American expectations. Whether the heroine is
a burkini-wearing student, a superhero, or a Jane
Austen-esque young teacher, they are affirming the
voices and choices of a new generation.
by Niranjana Iyer
 
THE LITERARY ALCHEMIST…………………. 22
Souvankham Thammavongsa’s sharp insights
on the struggles of refugees are revealed in her

Through characters who “do the grunt work
of the world,” she reveals their experiences of
fleeing, arriving and assimilating, and their
dreams of tree-lined neighbourhoods.
