Alberta Bestsellers: May 2021

The Alberta bestseller list for May 2021 showcases an exciting array of Alberta-published books that people are reading across the country. Mother Earth Plants for Health & Beauty: Indigenous Plants, Traditions, and Recipes takes the top spot for the second week in a row, from Eschia Books, a publisher that seeks to provide a venue for Indigenous writers, especially emerging authors and those who live in isolated areas of Canada. Meanwhile, new release The Bridge: Writing Across the Binary from Freehand Books hits the list for the first time and is a fascinating memoir of growing up in West Virginia in the 1940s and ’50s: a time and place where the word “nonbinary” didn’t exist. Plus fantastic offerings from Frontenac House, NeWest Press, Stonehouse Publishing, and Durvile & Uproute Books. For more information about each book, click on the name of the publisher.

The Alberta Bestseller list is created using national sales data from Bookmanager to rank books published in Alberta.
