Anansi Turns 55
When you purchase $55 worth of books from our anniversary collection you will receive a limited edition Anansi enamel pin.
To celebrate our 55th anniversary we're looking back at some of the critically acclaimed, award-winning, culture-defining books that made Anansi what it is today. In our 55th anniversary collection you'll find 55 books that reflect our original mission: challenge the status quo. Among these books are Canadian fiction, non-fiction, and poetry that has redefined genres, started national conversations, and stolen hearts in Canada and around the world.
Looking to the future, we're guided by the same principles that inspired Dennis Lee and David Godfrey to found Anansi. Our new publisher, Leigh Nash, put it best in a recent edition of Publishers Weekly: "We want to be powered by that sense of relentless optimism that buoyed early Anansi lists." This holiday season, that glittering feeling of possibility guides our celebrations as we step back to admire 55 years of very good books and look forward to the new year ahead.
