Congratulations to UWaterloo graduate Shelly Sanders, who has just completed the final book in her trilogy. Rachel’s Hope will be published in the United States and Canada in fall 2014 by Second Story Press, an independent Toronto-based feminist press best known for Hana’s Suitcase. Rachel’s Secret, the first book in the trilogy, received a Starred Review in Booklist and was deemed “critical for its under-explored subject” by Kirkus Reviews.
If you want to see Shelly in person to congratulate her–or just support independent publishing in Canada, a worthy enough cause–she will be signing copies of all three books at Toronto’s Word on the Street on September 21st. There will also be a book launch 2pm, September 28th, at A Different Drummer Books in Burlington. Shelly also has a Facebook page dedicated to the trilogy.
