Cover design for BrotherJoin us for a librarian-led discussion about Brother by David Chariandy.

"Brother explores questions of masculinity, family, race, and identity as they are played out in a Scarborough housing complex during the sweltering heat and simmering violence of the summer of 1991. With devastating emotional force David Chariandy crafts a heartbreaking and timely story about the profound love that exists between brothers and the senseless loss of lives cut short with the shot of a gun." – Publisher
