"Paper Icon" in Polish(ed) anthology

In fall 2017, Guernica Editions releases POLISH(ED): Poland Rooted in Canadian Fiction, edited by Kasia Jaronczyk and MaƂgorzata NowaczykPOLISH(ED) is an anthology of short fiction by or about the Polish diaspora in Canada.

Distributed by the University of Toronto Press, the book contains short stories by emerging and established writers. Two of the latter are Eva Stachniak and Ania Szado.

So, I'm honoured that my short story "Paper Icon," first published in Other Voices (Edmonton) in 2011, appears in POLISH(ED). The tale follows a widowed Polish immigrant in Stratford, Ontario--home to an international Shakespearean theatre festival--as she struggles to keep open her run-down bed-and-breakfast shortly after 2008's global financial crisis.
