Summary
"Is family defined by blood and birth? Or can we invite anyone into that intimate embrace? In The Language of Family, twenty contributors from across British Columbia--including museum curators, cultural luminaries, writers and thinkers young and old from our First Nations, LGBTQ, Japanese-Canadian and Punjabi communities, amongst others--share their vastly differing perspectives on what family means in this superb collection of personal narratives, poems and essays. This collection will provoke, tease, enlighten and infuriate. Isn't that what family does best?"--
