Chasing the Moon is Penny Chamberlain's new work of historical fiction for young readers. I mention it here while wearing my Freelance Publicist's hat to let everyone know to attend the book launch this weekend.
Sunday, October 1st
Mary Winspear Centre
Penny's book is one of two being featured in a weeklong series of school visits, public displays, signings, and launches organized and hosted by Sono Nis Press (the second book is Sylvia Olsen's new picture book, Yetsa's Sweater - I'll post a cover scan in a minute). Big publishers take note! This kind of all out support and promotion of new titles is rare, rare, rare and is yet another reason why I appreciate the work of Sono Nis. The books are gorgeous and Diane Morriss throws herself behind every title she produces. She really is the heart and soul behind the 'little press that could' even when the publishing industry in Canada suffers its share of troubles.
