In his essay collection exploring topics like civic monuments, family history and end times in the Arctic, Stephen Osborne, founder of Geist magazine and CBC Literary Award winner, highlights everyday coincidences within the broader scope of life in his book The Coincidence Problem (Arsenal Pulp Press $24.95), due out in October. From city centers to the Arctic’s edges, Osborne’s essays cover subjects such as global terrorism and the lynching of Indigenous youth Louie Sam.
