Eric Volmers, of the Calgary Herald came to chat with us about current and future books. He writes:

“A self-help book. A very graphic graphic novel. Tales about northern Ontario murders and Toronto urbanites. These are just the latest entries in Freehand’s eclectic catalogue, which over the years has also included poetry, hard-hitting memoirs, experimental short-story collections, historical fiction and even a Giller shortlister. It was announced earlier this week that Abu Bakr al Rabeeah’s memoir, Homes: A Refugee Story, written with Winnie Yeung, has been shortlisted for CBC’s Canada Reads. Historically, landing on that list has proven to be a significant boon for both author and publisher alike and should only strengthen Freehand’s long-standing reputation as a little publisher that punches far above its weight.”
