Tell: Poems for a girlhood

coverimageTell: Poems for a girlhood is a collection based on the story of Reena Virk, who was murdered on November 14th, 1997, in a suburb of Victoria, British Columbia. The poems make use of what was spoken in the trials of the young people involved in her murder, and consider remembrances of girlhood, the unease of adolescence, and the circumstances that enable some to pass through unhurt.

Tell is a powerful addition to the canon of Canadian true crime poetry texts. Look it up.” – George Elliott Clarke, The Chronicle Herald.

Tell is available
through the Toronto Public Library
or your local independent bookstore.
