Jael Richardson

Writer Jael Richardson’s debut novel Gutter Child is a dystopian look at Black identity and belonging

Elimina Dubois is “…a modern heroine in an altered but all too recognizable reality who must find the strength within herself to forge her future and defy a system that tries to shape her destiny.”

Richardson is also the author of The Stone Thrower : a daughter’s lesson, a Father’s life, a memoir which was also adapted into a children’s book. She lives in Brampton where she founded and serves as the artistic director of the Festival for Literary Diversity.

Recently Richardson was a guest on CBC’s The Next Chapter. Check out her interview with Shelagh Rogers.
