• Beach Reads

    They’re a bit heavier in your beach tote, but these deeply thoughtful, engaging reads will have you covered for long, lazy days in the sun.

  • Toronto Pride

    From “Gay Day Picnic” in 1971 to flashpoint of anti-police brutality in 2016, Toronto’s Pride Parade has never fully assimilated to the pink-washing, corporatizing, and homonationalist aims of the state. With this reading list, we've rounded up nonfiction, fiction, and poetry from the BTL catalogue and beyond.

  • Surveilled: The mining books cops don’t want you to read

    In 2019, two RCMP officers came to the launch of Unearthing Justice, at Mount Allison University. The results of an access to information request were just received. Despite the surveillance and intimidation, which we've faced before, we'll continue to publish books about Canada's mining industry. And we're taking this opportunity to look back at some of our favourite books on the subject.

  • Return of the New Left

    Aaron Sorkin’s new Netflix film “The Trial of the Chicago 7” misleads viewers, takes liberties with facts, and whitewashes the radical history of the New Left to make it more palatable to liberal viewers. If the movie left you frustrated and hungry to know more about the history of social movements in the 1960s and 1970s, check out our New Left reading list.
