Joining a host of important contemporary voices such as Gregory Scofield, Liz Howard and Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, Mi'kmaq writer Shannon Webb-Campbell's Who Took My Sister? is a collection of poems and texts that hold and carry trauma; they are a choir and a haunting testament.

Falling somewhere between Indigenous wisdom and contemporary poetic strategies Who Took My Sister? creates a space where readers are brought face to face with Mother Earth, Grandfather Sky, waterways, ancestors who give voice to the land, extreme national genocide, and Indigenous women whose lives are cut short by the colonial agenda.

Laced with piercing provocative awareness, cutting truths, and the reality of oppression, Who Took My Sister? is a decolonial orchestra and a rallying cry in the wilderness of our tumultuous times.

Shannon Webb-Campbell is a Mi'kmaq poet, wrtier, and critic. Her first book, Still No Word (2015) was the inaugural recipient of Egale Canada's Out In Print Award. She was Canadian Women In the Literary Arts critic-in-resentices in 2014, and she currently sit's on CWILA's board of directors. Who Took My Sister? is her second book.

Launches and events in Halifax, St. John's, Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, and Vancouver.

Electronic ARC available in January 2018

“This Mi’kmaq poet, writer and critic is a bit of a marvel. Her poetry
runs the gamut of the human experience—sometimes funny, sometimes
political, sometimes intimate. Reading her work feels, to put it simply,
like falling in love.” —Alicia Elliott
