About the Author
Nora Samaran is the pseudonym of Naava Smolash, a faculty member in the English department at Douglas College. Her writing appears in academic and popular publications including Studies in Canadian Literature, West Coast Line, Briarpatch, and the University of Toronto Quarterly.
"Nora Samaran writes with a unique combination of compassion and intelligence on the most pressing topic of our time. I'm convinced that if every person read her words, the world would be a much better place." --Liz Plank, journalist and executive producer of Divided States of Women
"Turn This World Inside Out is doing work in an area that is highly topical, in a way that I, for one, have never seen before. This book is doing something unique and visionary. A lot of writing is visionary about something, but this book is visionary about something that, at this moment, is on everyone's mind. In book form, it could reach a lot of people."
-- Wayde Compton, Author of After Canaan and The Outer Harbour, Creative Writing Program Director at The Writer's Studio, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, BC.
"Turn this World Inside Out is a must-have for educators, parents, counselors, and all members of the community who are working to transform structural harm. ... Using accessible language, Turn This World Inside Out lays out the social forces that perpetuate harm, and provides essential language to help start difficult conversations. This book offers us more than insight into the problem of structural harm; it also offers a part of the remedy and is thus essential reading for everyone who wants to shift to a culture of healing, nurturance, and love." --Agustina Vidal and Maryse Mitchell-Brody, The Icarus Project, New York
