Dancing In The Mosque
by Homeira Qaderi

View in Library Catalog



Women's rights activist Homeira Qaderi documents her life through letters to the son she was forced to abandon in Afghanistan in 2015. Her memoir depicts the life of a female growing up in a stringently patriarchal society during the horrors and deprivation of the Russian occupation, and the terror and oppression of Taliban rule in wartorn Afghanistan. Married off at 17, Qaderi experienced her first taste of women's freedom while living with her husband in Iran. But a return to Afghanistan meant a return to the struggle to live life on her own terms. Despite her tribulations, Qaderi offers vignettes of optimism and sheer joy, such as the exuberant account of the event that gave this book its title.

The Expo Files: Articles By The Crusading Journalist
by Stieg Larsson

View in Library Catalog



While Stieg Larsson is best-known in Canada as the crime fiction writer of the Millennium Trilogy, he was first and foremost a prolific journalist committed to exposing Neo-Nazis and far-right movements in Sweden. The Expo Files is a collection of Larsson's well-researched, insightful, thought-provoking articles and essays that are as relevant today in what they articulate about far-right and populist movements, racism, and anti-democratic ideology as they were when they were written.

The Wolf that Never Sleeps: A Story of Baden-Powell
by Marguerite De Beaumont

View in Library Catalog



An interesting biography about Lord Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Girl Guides and Boy Scouts. It had lots of stories that I have never before heard in the Guiding and Scouting circles. I learned lots about the founder's experience and about it contributed to and shaped the organizations he started over a hundred years ago.

Slay
by Brittney Morris

I was a little apprehensive about this book at first, because I know nothing about gaming and thought that I wouldn’t connect with the story, but was I ever wrong! I really enjoyed SLAY – it was entertaining, I loved how strong our main character, Kiera, was, and I loved how it tackled issues facing the Black community and Black gamers. I listened to it on audio, which was very well done.
