Mercedes Eng's my yt mama has arrived!

Cover of my yt mama.

We are so pleased to announce that Mercedes Eng’s wonderful new book of poetry, my yt mama is fresh in-house from the printer!

In the follow-up to her BC Book Prize-winning book of poetry, Prison Industrial Complex Explodes, Eng continues her poetic investigation of racism and colonialism in Canada, weaponizing the language of the nation-state against itself in the service of social justice. my yt mama is a collection of poems that considers historic and contemporary colonial violence in the Canadian prairies, a settler geography and state of mind that irrevocably shaped Eng’s understanding of race as person of colour born and raised in Treaty 7 Territory in Medicine Hat, Alberta.

Like the author herself, my yt mama is hybrid: part memoir, part history, part discourse analysis, part love letter to her mother.
