Inanna Publications is one of very few independent feminist presses remaining in Canada. Founded in 1978, we publish visionary books that reflect the depth, breadth, and diversity of women’s lives in Canada and around the world. Just as Inanna was established to disrupt the realities of women’s marginalized voices in writing and publishing, in celebration of Inanna’s 40th anniversary, four Inanna authors will read from and discuss disruptive realities in their recent works of feminist fiction.
