AICW Books on the Internment of Italian Canadians

In March 2012, the Association of Italian Canadian Writers (AICW), in partnership with Guernica Editions and Accenti Magazine, launched two books on the internment of Italian Canadians during the Second World War. The books – one academic, and one creative –  bring together essays, stories and creative writings on the subject of the internment. These collections  offer a comprehensive and thought-provoking look at the events of 1940. The books are published in print and electronic format, and were launched in five cities across Canada in March. The books are distributed free of charge to libraries, academic institutions, community organizations and individuals. The academic book is a co-publication with the Columbus Centre of Toronto.

The eBooks (Behind Barbed Wire and Beyond Barbed Wire) can be downloaded for free from the Guernica Website at:
