      Description
      Deep Salt Water is a stirring memoir about loss and abortion, expressed through the layering of imagery from the ocean. In detail at once sensual and sophisticated, Apostolides unfurls the emotional experience of a love affair and unwanted pregnancy, the abortion itself, and her reconnection with the man seventeen years later—a rekindling of love which stimulates this gentle attempt to come to terms with the abortion and its consequences. Moving from a place of intense intimacy to an outward focus that engages with the broader world, Deep Salt Water discusses abortion in all its complexity, rejecting polarizing rhetoric in favour of the unfathomable truths that women hold in their bodies.

      With 9 full colour plates of mixed media collage by Catherine Mellinger.

      “…an intoxicating, accretive reading experience, shot through with
      recognizable truth and a clever use of the splice of precision and
      interruption to deliver them.”


      “Deep Salt Water is intimate and sensual, tidal and saline –
      how can a book be tidal and saline? These words make sense within the
      environment of the book. Apostolides’s language is not of pristine
      nature but of the anthropocene, our current geologic age of bleached
      coral and oceans choking on plastics. In light of man-made climate
      catastrophe, learning this language takes on added urgency.”

      Description

      "I hadn't always been lost, but Prince Edward Island had suddenly become too small for my grief. My grief needed the whole world. It needed isolation. It needed inspiration. It needed something to change, something to be released. It needed an answer."

      In 2008, Maureen and Mitch Cobb took drastic action in the wake of the stillbirth death of their second child, Tya. They packed up two-year-old Leila and set out on a journey through Southeast Asia, a trip of courage, love, and, ultimately, redemption. They left their small town in the Maritimes to fill the silence of their grief with the noisy spice markets of Bali, the crashing waves of the Philippines, and the golden surrenders of Borneo's hot sun. Through twelve countries and nine months, in the chaos of difficult travel plans and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, this young family begins to find acceptance in the humanity that surrounds them, the inspiration in each other to continue, and the courage to come back from their complicated grief.

      Unpacked is the inspiring story of a mother in search of herself, a husband and wife fighting for a marriage, a young daughter who rises from confusion, and the scenes and revelations that bring Mo out of her paralyzing grief and into the perspective of a new world.

      Bio

      Winner of the 2017 Toronto Book Award

      A remarkable memoir about achieving prosperity in the face of relentless prejudice

      In the Black traces B. Denham Jolly’s personal and professional struggle for a place in a country where Black Canadians have faced systematic discrimination. He arrived from Jamaica to attend university in the mid-1950s and worked as a high school teacher before going into the nursing and retirement-home business. Though he was ultimately successful in his business ventures, Jolly faced both overt and covert discrimination, which led him into social activism. The need for a stronger voice for the Black community fuelled Jolly’s 12-year battle to get a licence for a Black-owned radio station in Toronto. At its launch in 2001, Flow 93.5 became the model for urban music stations across the country, helping to launch the careers of artists like Drake.

      Jolly chronicles not only his own journey; he tells the story of a generation of activists who worked to reshape the country into a more open and just society. While celebrating these successes, In the Black also measures the distance Canada still has to travel before we reach our stated ideals of equality.

      Bio

      B. Denham Jolly is an award-winning businessman, publisher, broadcaster, and civil rights activist. He was the founding president of the Black Business and Professional Association and later served as the publisher of Contrast and launched Flow 93.5, Canada’s first Black-owned broadcaster. He lives in Toronto, Ontario.

      Reviews

      “As this memoir unfolded, I was more and more drawn to the author. . . The book is filled with lively sketches of legendary black Canadian activists.” — Literary Review of Canada

      “[Mr Jolly] holds nothing back in relating the story of his personal and professional life in Jamaica and here in Canada.” — Pride News

      “A fast-paced recounting of an eventful life.”— Toronto Star

      “As a kid growing up in the GTA, and as a huge Hip Hop and R&B fan, I was introduced to Hip Hop and R&B music by FLOW 93.5. All Urban music lovers in Toronto should feel an indebtedness to its founder, Denham Jolly. To hear Drake, Kardinal, or even Jay Z on a consistent basis, you had to listen to FLOW 93.5. This book gives you great insight into his story and should inspire young people to pursue their dreams no matter what the challenges.” — Andre De Grasse, three-time 2016 Olympic medalist

      “Denham introduced the first Black owned and operated radio station in Canada’s history, and, in doing so, brought Urban music to Canada for the first time, introducing successful Canadian Urban artists like Drake, Kardinal Offishal, Jully Black, K-OS, K’naan, Swollen Members, Choclair, and many more to commercial airwaves. He is a recognized philanthropist and a visionary leader who possesses an uncanny balance of social, fiduciary, and political imperatives. On a personal note, he has impacted my life greatly as a mentor, friend and role model.” — Farley Flex, Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Award Recipient, National UNICEF Ambassador, B’nai Brith Canada Special Advisory Council League of Human Rights, and BBPA Harry Jerome Award Recipient for Entertainment & Community

      “The memoir of Denham Jolly, In the Black, is a very important book; it’s well written and a must read for anyone interested in a more just society.” — Honourable R. Roy McMurtry, OC, O. Ont., QC LSM, Former Chief Justice of Ontario

      “Read this dynamic history of a leader who has given much to the development of Canada’s Black Community. We have made progress as Black Canadians because of the activism and advocacy of this giant of a man. Read his interesting life journey and his determination to give voice to the issues of the day. Denham Jolly has shown that with hard work, determination, and a readiness to ‘buck the system’ — to stand up for and with the community on social issues and injustice — one can accomplish much. This story of his life and his accomplishments is a must read for all who engage with their communities.” — Honourable Jean Augustine, PC, CM, CBE, Former Deputy Speaker Canadian House of Commons

      In the Black is a must-read. In the face of one closed door after another, Jolly’s perseverance against the odds is fascinating to observe. In the Black isn’t just a broadcasting story, but also one of struggle, of the strength of the human spirit, and of ambitions realized. This book should be required reading for business schools, or for anyone with entrepreneurial aspirations.” —Gary Slaight, CM, President and Chief Executive Officer Slaight Communications Inc.

      “Part memoir and part manifesto, it documents Jolly’s personal struggles while also chronicling the stories of an entire generation of social activists. It is a passionate narrative about personal ambition, a community’s hardships and successes, and its search for a voice.” — SirReadsALot blog

      Description
      A prudent and intentional examination of privilege and belonging in Chilliwack Lake by retired environmental lawyer and grandmother. Curious about the previous inhabitants of the lake where her family has spent the summer for over one hundred years, author Shelley O'Callaghan starts researching and writing about the area. But what begins as a personal journey of one woman's relationship to the land and her desire to uncover the history of her family's remote cabin turns into an exploration and questioning of our rights as settlers upon a land that was inhabited long before we came. In her research, O'Callaghan uncovers a history that runs as deep as the three hundred metre lake itself. Eager to pass on her discoveries, she shares her journey with her six grandchildren. Together they learn of her grandfather's intriguing connection with the First Nation's chief, whose ancestry goes back to the earliest recorded history at the lake, and her grandmother's attendance at a school where First Nations girls were taught servitude instead of knowledge. They find the headstone of an American scout with the 1858 International Boundary Commission Survey, a 1916 silver mine set up by Chief Sepass and the remnants of the original Indian Trail. They learn about trapper and prospector Charlie Lindeman, who introduced her grandfather to the lake in the early 1920s and rescued her mother and grandmother from a fire that engulfed the lake in the 1930s. After a summer of discoveries, O'Callaghan and her grandchildren consider the impact of the legacy of white settlement in the area-what is received from the past and what is given to the future. As they reflect on the essence of a "summer cabin," a place that brings family together and that nourishes the soul with its solitude and beauty, they gain a new perspective on the inevitable repercussions of privilege and the nature of change.
      Bio
      Committed to social causes, Shelley O'Callaghan worked as a volunteer teacher for two years with the Canadian University Services Overseas in Zambia where she fostered literacy among adults in the rural communities and encouraged girls to stay in school and finish their education.

      Description
      Compelling and honest life of a stubborn BC rancher living tenaciously in the face of her Multiple Sclerosis condition. The devastating diagnosis of an incurable, debilitating disease does not ordinarily form the starting point of a triumphant story. This, however, is a triumphant story. Heidi Redl was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2004 and immediately chose to fight the disease with the only tools available to her: sheer stubbornness and courage. Growing up on a pioneer ranch in the rough and dusty days of the late 1960s and the 1970s, Redl learned at a young age to be self-reliant and tenacious. Life as a rancher had given her the courage she would need to bravely and persistently fight back against this chronic disease that now affects 2.5 million people worldwide. But nothing in her previous experiences could fully prepare her to live with an equally tenacious enemy. In A QUIET ROAR, Redl shares the struggles and triumphs in her uphill battle with multiple sclerosis. To survive, Redl must first learn to trust and rely on other people for the help she would need in the new reality of her daily life. This compelling and honest memoir is a record of her struggle against the physical challenges of living with a progressive disease but also of the support and incredible friendships she found along the way.
      Bio
      Heidi Redl lives and writes with multiple sclerosis in Williams Lake, BC. Her columns and stories have appeared in CANADIAN COWBOY COUNTRY magazine, in the MS Kamloops Chapter newsletter, in CANADIAN GEOGRAPHIC and in MACLEAN'S magazines. She continues to write, to teach writing, and to struggle against the effects of MS in her life with the help of her husband, Tom, and her family and friends.

      Description

      Born in a log cabin during a raging blizzard on Indian Brook Reserve in 1938, Mi'kmaw elder Daniel N. Paul rose to the top of a Canadian society that denied his people's civilization. When he was named to the Order of Canada, his citation called him a "powerful and passionate advocate for social justice and the eradication of racial discrimination." His Order of Nova Scotia honour said he "gives a voice to his people by revealing a past that the standard histories have chosen to ignore."

      But long before the acclaim, there was the Indian Agent denying food to his begging mother. There was the education system that taught him his people were savages. There was the Department of Indian Affairs that frustrated his work to bring justice to his people.

      His landmark book We Were Not the Savages exposed the brutalities of the collision between European and Native American civilizations from a Mi'kmaq perspective. The book sold tens of thousands of copies around the world and inspired others to learn history from an indigenous point of view.

      He shone a light on Halifax founder Edward Cornwallis through newspaper columns and public debates over two decades, calling on Nova Scotia to stop honouring the man whose scalping proclamations were an act of genocide against the Mi'kmaq.

      Now, for the first time, here is the full story of his personal journey of transformation, a story that will inspire Canadians to recognize and respect their First Nations as equal and enlightened civilizations.

      Bio
      Jon Tattrie is an award-winning author and journalist. His previous books include Redemption Songs: How Bob Marley"s Nova Scotia Song Lights the Way Past Racism, Cornwallis: The Violent Birth of Halifax, and The Hermit of Africville.

      Description
      This book tackles one of the big problems employers face today: finding and keeping the best employees, especially at a time when young workers typically quit after only three years on the job. Rethink Work stands out from other books in this category because the author is one of those young people: 24-year-old Eric Termuende, a rising star on the international speakers circuit.

      " Eric Termuende does a deep-dive into the modern workplace, highlighting the importance of hiring right and creating awesome culture to retain top talent." - Brian Scudamore FOUNDER AND CEO OF O2E BRANDS, INCLUDING 1-800-GOT-JUNK

      "Eric Termuende takes a wide departure from the standard writings on workplace culture and organizational effectiveness by putting the focus where it belongs: on people! Eric sees the potential for organizations to refine their culture, embracing the uniqueness and passion each person brings to their work. This refreshing and inspiring book is a must-read for any business leader who wants to leapfrog their competition during a period of rapid technological change." - Jim Dewald DEAN, HASKAYNE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS, UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY

      This is one of the most important books a leader in today's work world can read. Termuende provides an overview of the many challenges modern work environments face, including the recruitment and retention of talent. The roadmap Termuende provides articulates how to take these challenges and in turn transform company culture into one where both employers and employees focus on "why" they do what they do and on a mutual values match. Termuende also explores more dynamic ways to recruit, write job descriptions and overall "how" to tell your company's story. One of the biggest takeaways however is the importance of focusing on your employees as individuals and not their generation." - Gareth McVicarMANAGER, LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS, UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY

      Succeed in Any Culture, in Every Situation

      In today’s global economy, the ability to interact effectively across cultures is a fundamental job requirement for just about everyone. But it’s impossible to learn the customs and traits of every single culture. David Thomas and Kerr Inkson present a universal set of techniques and people skills that will allow you to adapt quickly to, and thrive in, any cultural environment. You’ll learn to discard your own culturally based assumptions and pay careful attention, in a mindful and creative way, to cues in cross-cultural situations. The authors show how to apply cultural intelligence in a series of specific situations: making decisions; communicating, negotiating, and resolving conflicts; leading and motivating others; and designing, managing, and contributing to multicultural groups and teams.

      This extensively revised third edition has been updated with new stories showing cultural intelligence in action. Thomas and Inkson have broadened the focus beyond business to include organizations of all kinds—nonprofits, governments, educational institutions, and more. And they include a reliable and valid measure of cultural intelligence based on a decade of research by an international team of scholars.

      “What makes Sarah Vermunt’s new work manual Careergasm: Find Your Way to Feel-Good Work stand out from all the rest is she strips out all the yawn-inducing, sometimes straight-up nonsensical corporate jargon that makes so many other how-to’s insufferable, injects just enough casual language to make youngs feel comfortable, and breaks it down into totally digestible, doable, realistic chunks (no abstract “If you dream it, you can achieve it!” mantras here).” — FLARE

      “Her advice is spot-on . . . This is an irreverent but important addition to the career shelves.” — Booklist

      Careergasm is refreshingly real, fiercely empowering, and full of piss and vinegar . . . like the author herself! For a feel-good career that thrills and delights, think of this as FUN required reading!” — Linda Sivertsen, bestselling author and host of the Beautiful Writers Podcast

      “There aren’t many people out there who are willing to tell the hard truth. Lucky for you, Sarah Vermunt is one of them. Buy this book if you’re ready for powerful professional advice, served straight up — because who wants that watered down sh*t, am I right?” — Steph Jagger, coach and author of Unbound: A Story of Snow and Self-Discovery

      “Passionate, honest, and funny, Sarah Vermunt will take you from having no freaking idea what to do to being super jazzed and running down the path towards work that feels good. There might even be rainbows. There are so many YES! moments, so many gems, so many nuggets of smarts and wisdom in this book. Each one is a little nudge; add them all up and you’ll find yourself down the path of a fun and fulfilling career and, just maybe, actually liking Mondays.” — Marc Johns, artist

      Careergasm is a fun, energizing, useful tool for the person who wants more from their work than a way to pay bills. Prepare to engage deeply and transform your work!” — Pamela Slim, author of Escape from Cubicle Nation and Body of Work

      Careergasm is a bible for anyone of any age who wants to take a career leap. Sarah Vermunt’s words spill through the pages with stunning accounts of real and true stories that anyone can relate to. My copy is lovingly filled with dog eared pages so that I can come back to her wisdom over and over. Although I love what I do, this book is filled with beautiful reminders and inspirations to stay on the path, intact and orgasmic.” — Tiffany Pratt, stylist, designer, and author of This Can Be Beautiful

Filled with both comedic and motivational punches, Careergasm will help you see there is more to life than a 9 to 5 that makes you roll your eyes every Monday morning.” — Jen Glantz, author of Always a Bridesmaid (For Hire)

      “She has such a way with words that made me feel vulnerable and exposed but also like I was in a safe space. I have been singing her praises to everyone I come into contact with because it was such a Godsend for me. I could probably write a dissertation on it because it is seriously life changing.” — Speaking Of Everything Mag
