Sheniz for Echoes from the Other Land by Ava Homa

Markham, ON

Ava Homa's Echoes from the Other Land is a stunning debut of short stories that provides an intimate look at the lives of women in Iran. Told from a Kurdish perspective, this book is truly a reflection of what Canada is known for - A haven for diverse voices. Homa is a courageous author who shows us the other side of life in Iran - one we often don't have access to through mainstream media. She deserves to be recognized.
