The inimitable Shelagh Rogers hosts a conversation with the authors of three of the year’s most celebrated novels.

 

And Then She Fell by Alicia Elliott is a mind-bending story about Native life, motherhood and mental health that follows a young Mohawk woman who discovers that the picture-perfect life she always hoped for may have horrifying consequences.

 

The latest from Katherine Vermette , the award-winning and #1 bestselling author of The Break and The Strangers is The Circle, a poignant and unwavering epic told from a constellation of Métis voices that consider the fallout when the person who connects them all goes missing

 

VenCo , from Cherie Dimaline, the bestselling author of The Marrow Thieves and Empire of Wild, is a wickedly subversive, and deeply feminist novel of contemporary witches on the rise.

 

Books are available from our friends at Perfect Books.
