In | Appropriate is a collection of interviews with Canadian and Indigenous authors, exploring how they work through questions of difference, identity, and appropriation in their writing.

“In | Appropriate is a vulnerable, deeply human introduction to one of the most difficult yet needed conversations of our time.”
– Ashley Hynd

“In | Appropriate puts you at the heart of one of the most important culture-creating conversations of our time. These discussions cannot be summarized, and that is why they are so beautiful and crucial. Nuance, complexity and context makes all the difference when we talk about writing difference. Thank goodness for this book, which gives us full conversations to deepen our experience. Everybody should read this, especially writers and readers of fiction.”
– Sarah Selecky, author of Radiant Shimmering Light

“Guided by the wise and generous Kim Davids Mandar, In | Appropriate is the conversation about writing that we need right now. A collection as compelling as it is urgent, these nuanced and intimate discussions with some of our brightest writers together act as a wayfinder in what has been, to this point, uncharted territory. Through empathy and experience, In | Appropriate offers a way to move forward.”
– Emily Urquhart, author of Beyond the Pale
