Where to buy it


Are We Friends Now is a dynamic and exhilarating collection of writing from LGBTQ+ youth and allies from around PEI. The product of a collaboration between PEERS Alliance and the PEI Writers' Guild, the multi-genre selections in Are We Friends Now are the result of several months of workshopping and brainstorming at the Queer Youth Writing Club, and also include pieces from adult volunteers. Are We Friends Now will appeal to readers of all ages, and makes a great addition to classroom and library collections.
