    Fantasy Island is a collection of poems by Vancouver Island University student and Nanaimo resident Jannine Grant exposing the illusions and impacts of colonialism on Vancouver Island and beyond. Historic and ongoing colonialist actions including racism, sexism and destruction of our environment and people are articulated by poems such as: The Smell of this Place, Elegy for J50 and After the Flood.
