Bones of Belonging

A Story Collection

Bones of Belonging is a non-fiction collection of sharp, funny and poignant essays sharing what it’s like to be a brown woman working for change in a white world.

In a series of deft interlocking stories, Bones of Belonging shares experiences of searching for, and teaching about, belonging in our deeply divided world. A critically acclaimed racialized immigrant writer and recognized diversity and inclusion leader, Annahid writes with wisdom, honesty and a wry humour as she considers what it means to belong—to a country, in a marriage, in our own skin—and what the impact is when belonging is absent.

Like the bones of the human body, these stories and vignettes knit together a remarkable vision of what wholeness looks like as a racial outsider in a culture still dominated by whiteness.

Bones of Belonging is now available for pre-order and will be released in May 2023.
