The Writer by Norm Foster
Silence: Mabel and Alexander Graham Bell by Trina Davies
The Breathing Hole | Aglu ᐊᒡᓗ by Colleen Murphy with Siobhan Arnatsiaq-Murphy, translated by Janet Tamalik McGrath

Selfie
When a budding romance at a high school party ends after a sexual assault, three teens must grapple with what happened and what comes next.

Pretty Goblins
When Laura finds a familiar book of poems in her estranged twin Lizzie’s bedroom, the sisters are dragged through a turbulent past, reliving their complicated history in order to make sense of their present.

The Writer
Both comical and poignant, this story of familial bonds traces seven years of a complex father-son relationship affected by the onset of dementia.

Silence: Mabel and Alexander Graham Bell
All relationships need the strength of good communication—even the couple behind the historic invention of the telephone needed to find the right wavelength once in a while.

The Breathing Hole | Aglu ᐊᒡᓗ
For over five hundred years, a polar bear named Angu’řuaq has been witness to history from a breathing hole in Nunavut: from his entry into an Inuit community in the sixteenth century, to an encounter with the Franklin Expedition in the mid-nineteenth century, to an oil-slicked struggle on a cruise ship in the twenty-first century.

ASL interpretation will be provided, as well as written excerpts sent ahead of the event.
