August is the best month for working through a reading list. Sunlight continues to linger in the evening, but we’ve mostly left the sweltering weather of July behind us. With that in mind, we’ve made a short list of the books we’ve been burying our noses in lately. We’ve chosen these books because they offer an alternative perspective, or take place somewhere very different from Canada in 2016. Take a look at our picks! We hope you’ll be inspired.
