African-Canadian Authors

by - 17:46

I'm currently in Canada visiting Mr. bookshy and while I could spend my entire post talking about how much I love it here (sans the cold), I stumbled upon something even more interesting - African-Canadian authors. Here I am referring specifically to Canadian-Africans, not Caribbean-Canadians (of which there are many). I knew Esi Edugyan was Canadian, and her novel Half-Blood Blues is next on my reading list, but I wanted to know if there were more Canadian's of African origin writing - please, excuse my ignorance. So here are a few that I've found. Obviously, I am off to a local bookstore to see if I can find some of these treasures.
