Three of the fall’s most anticipated books examine lives where the shadow of the past is ever-present. Requiem by Frances Itani, winner of the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Deafening , explores the lasting legacy of the internment of Japanese-Canadians after Pearl Harbor. Retribution by Carmen Rodríguez illustrates how the traumas of social upheaval manifest across three generations of Chilean women from the pre-Pinochet era to life in Canada thirty years later. Tell It to the Trees by Anita Rau Badami, author of Tamarind Mem and The Hero’s Walk , threads together a story of love and need, and of chilling family secrets never told aloud. Tickets: $15 ($10 reduced). Free for members. (thebookpile)
