Under God's Pale Bones
by author: David Groulx.
“This is a reunion, ready to drink like a good Calvados from Northern France aged until the vintage is ready to be unveiled, shared. These poems are the impressions my world has left on me. The world beneath God’s pale bones.” —David A. Groulx

Ceremonies for the Dead
By Author: Gwen Benaway (published as Giles Benaway)
Ceremonies for the Dead examines the haunting themes of inter-generational trauma, cyclical abuse and inherited grief. Four generations of the dead take turns narrating these themes, navigating from the Great Lakes through the Appalachian Mountains, and examining the fur trade, an exile from Minnesota, the experiences of West Virginia coal miners, and the legacy of mission schools. Black humour and satire fill the collection, illuminating a fierce determination to survive and resist colonization and the endurance of culture and identity under extreme duress.
Ceremonies for the Dead is the award-winning debut book of poetry written by Gwen Benaway.
