Her first book, Zolitude was long listed for the Scotiabank Giller Prize, shortlisted for the Governor General’s Literary Award for Fiction, and won the Concordia University First Book Prize. Zolitude, is a short story collection that mixes social commentary with sci-fi and fantasy elements.
Jahliya Cummings is a 17 year old dancer from the South Shore here to present her slam poem “Not Your Average Black Girl.”
