Everyday Exposure: Indigenous Mobilization and Environmental Justice in Canada's Chemical Valley
Saturday, November 12th @ 5:30pm
Everyday Exposure uncovers the systemic injustices faced on a daily basis in Aamjiwnaang. By exploring the problems that Canada's conflicting levels of jurisdiction pose for the creation of environmental justice policy, analyzing clashes between Indigenous and scientific knowledge, and documenting the experiences of Aamjiwnaang residents as they navigate their toxic environment, this book argues that social and political change requires an experiential and transformative "sensing policy" approach, one that takes the voices of Indigenous citizens seriously.
Randa Jarrar’s stories grapple with love, loss, displacement, and survival in a collection that moves seamlessly between real- ism and fable, history and the present. With humor, irony, and boundless imagination, Jarrar brings to life a memorable cast of characters, many of them “accidental transients”—a term for migratory birds who have gone astray—seeking their circuitous routes back home.

The Dependent is a true story written by a military wife married to a paratrooper who served in the Canadian Armed Forces for fourteen years before his army career came to a crashing halt - a freak accident near Armed Forces Base Trenton left him paraplegic and their future in shards. In this deeply candid depiction of their marriage before and after a life-altering trauma, each chapter unveils an intimate portrait of marriage - one in which Danielle and Steve must navigate shifting roles and learn to co-exist in a space where the collateral damage of military service is absolute. The Dependent is a brave and modern love story revealing immeasurable loss and grief and the journey to lasting hope and forgiveness.

Stone Woman is a saga of Blossom's unconventional family of five women, whose lives are bound by a Vietnam-War draft dodger David, immersed in the Yorkville subculture of the hippie daze of Toronto. The novel draws the reader into a web of liaisons -- into David's love affair with Blossom's mother Liza, his covert dealings with her friend Anna, as well as the mysterious Helena. The story is brought to the present through the lives of the women's daughters who discover that their family secrets have been sculpted -- literally -- into an art form that imparts a sense of homecoming and alludes to a more hopeful future.
