SAM & EVA Book Launch Party in Toronto on October 10, 2017!

On Facebook, see my SAM & EVA Book Launch Party event link. Please do RSVP if you are planning to go or are considering going - this will help us (me, A Different Booklist bookstore, my sis Ruth, husband Jeff and Simon & Schuster Canada) plan accordingly. Thank you!


The official publication date for SAM & EVA isn't until Oct.17, but S&S Canada has arranged to have books available a week early, yay!

For those who want to support a friend's new book but can't afford to buy it, there are so many other ways you can show your support! Here are some suggestions (and THANK YOU in advance!).

Nice review for SAM & EVA in Kirkus

Thanks to Kirkus for the nice review of SAM & EVA, which I've added to my Sam & Eva Press page.

"A power tussle between two kids plays out through mischievous drawings....Eva, who’s Asian, and Sam, who’s black, are full of movement, their postures and facial expressions different on every spread. When their mural becomes frantic and out of hand, the kids escape in a way that Crockett Johnson’s Harold would be proud of."
