Catherine Hernandez

Catherine Hernandez is a proud queer brown femme author and artistic director of b current performing arts. She is of Filipino, Spanish, Chinese, and Indian heritage, and she is married into the Navajo Nation. Hernandez is the author of the acclaimed and award-winning novel Scarborough. Crosshairs is her second novel.

Samia Madwar

Samia Madwar is the managing editor at The Walrus. She is also a member of the Magazines Canada board of directors and the Inuit Art Quarterly editorial advisory council. 



In a terrifyingly familiar near-future, with massive floods that lead to rampant homelessness and devastation, a government-sanctioned regime seizes the opportunity to force communities of colour, the disabled and the LGBTQ2S into labour camps in the city of Toronto. Meanwhile, in the shadows, a new hero emerges when a queer Black performer and his allies join forces to rise up against this oppressive regime.

With her signature prose, Catherine Hernandez creates a cautionary tale filled with fierce and vibrant characters that explores the universal desire to thrive, to love and to be loved.
