Diversity in CanLit

  • Age: 0 to 100
  • Grade: p to 17
Canadians have written a wide range of diverse books — here are a few to add to the #WeNeedDiverseBooks campaign. "We Need Diverse Books is a grassroots organization created to ... recognize all diverse experiences, including (but not limited to) LGBTQIA, people of color, gender diversity, people with disabilities, and ethnic, cultural, and religious minorities." However, as Léonicka of #DiverseCanLit explains, a lot of the problem is that there is no cross-over in the genres. An immigrant story is marketed as *just* an immigrant story; a sci-fi Aboriginal narrative is marketed as *just* Aboriginal, not sci-fi; or their experiences are used as tropes and clichés. This is part of the problem—that diverse characters and backgrounds aren't reflected in all genres or story types.
