The Language of Family: Stories of Bonds and Belonging is a visual and literary exploration of the meaning of family in many contexts. Essays and poems from 20 contributors across British Columbia offer personal perspectives on what family is, how families form, how they represent themselves, and how they define a sense of place and connection. Nests, with strips of text from the essays and poems interwoven, are used as a metaphor for family.
