Art & Literature


Short month. Short stack. Amazing reads.

Brit Bennett’s ‘The Vanishing Half,’ needs no introduction. It debuted at #1 on The New York Times
fiction best-seller list, HBO has already acquired the rights to develop a limited series and if that wasn’t
enough to sway you, it was named one of Barack Obama’s favourite books of 2020. Compelling and
beautifully written. Trust us — add this one to the stack.



If you enjoyed Thomas King’s ‘The Inconvenient Indian,’ you will love his latest book, ‘Indians on Vacation.’ Witty and Funny. Sarcastic and Ironic. Again — add this to the stack.


We’ve found ourselves falling hard for short stories recently, and it’s hard not to when you get a copy of Souvankham Thammavongsa’s ‘How To Pronounce Knife.’ A Giller Prize winner, this collection of short stories will pull at your heartstrings as you catch a glimpse into the new lives and hardships of Laos immigrants. Poignant and riveting. Add to the stack.



Happy February reading WF friends!
