Against the backdrop of the changing seasons, Shirley Camia's The Significance of Moths is a graceful exploration of home and memory through the eyes of the migrant and the migrant child. As lives are displaced by new landscapes, where does home exist? In the land or in the mind? For new Canadians and their children there is no easy answer. In the journey to form identity, The Significance of Moths confronts the ghosts of "what was" with the here and now.

Shirley Camia is a broadcaster and journalist, born in Winnipeg to first-generation Filipino immigrants.

She has traveled throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia, sleeping alongside the rice fields of rural Japan and falling in love with Canada's far north.

She lives and writes in Toronto.
