Do you ever wish you could write your teenaged self a letter about what you wished you had known back then?
Letters Lived: Radical reflections, revolutionary paths edited by Sheila Sampath takes this question and poses it to a diverse group of international and cross-generational social justice activists and asks them to answer. The result is a series of candid and powerful letters that discuss the personal and political and the journey in between.
Ashley Little’s Anatomy of a Girl Gang is like an after-school special gone horribly awry -- and that’s a good thing.

It's been another great year in the rabble book lounge and to celebrate we'd like to share some of our favourite original book reviews from 2013.
rabble contributors completely outdid themselves this year writing on topics from residential schools to Canadian queer icons to female sexuality to the future of Canadian politics.
Here, in no particular order, are some of our best book reviews of 2013.
Join authors Edith Baguinho, Irene Marques, Aida Jordão, Emanuel Melo, Humberto da Silva and Antonio M. Marques for readings and book signings as we celebrate the launch of Memória: An Anthology of Portuguese Canadian Writers.

Last week, writer Lynn Coady received Canada’s most prestigious literary honour, the Giller Prize, for her short story collection Hellgoing, cementing that 2013 is not only the year of the short story, but also the year of the female writer in mainstream literature.
Coady’s win came less than a month after one of her mentors, Alice Munro, became the first Canadian woman to win the Nobel Prize in Literature, and only the 13th woman since the prize was first awarded in 1901.
A free reading at the lovely Cafune Brazilian Cafe.
