New Book Launch: Lighting the North

November 16, 2020 - Golden Brick Road Publishing House set to release new book, Lighting the North: An Anthology of Feminism and Cultural Diversity from Across the Nation written by a co-authorship of Canadian women, currently available for pre-order.

Canada thrives as a diverse country with a unique culture. Lighting the North will help shed light on equality, freedom, and what it means to be a woman in Canada. The struggles and unrecognized achievements we face as women are just as present today as they were in the past. The Women of the North share their secrets to their successes, the spirited stories of their failures, as well as incredible tips and insights for thriving in our multicultural country.

Are you a born and raised Canadian? Are you indigenous to this land? A newcomer to Canada? Do you hear stories of your elders’ fight for this land, or their journey to relocate to Canada? This book illustrates the diverse search for identity and belonging each woman faces and the collective spirit she is building among her Northern sisters, the day-to-day grind, and the behind closed doors secrets we face in our nation.

The publishing date is November 16, 2020––International Day for Tolerance. “Tolerance is respect, acceptance and appreciation of the rich diversity of our world's cultures, our forms of expression and ways of being human.” -UNESCO, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
