World rights sold to Daniel Innes and Christina Wong‘s Denison Avenue, a story told in two parts as a graphic novel and novella, about elderly Wong Cho Sum’s attempt to cope with the death of her husband by taking up bottle and can collecting, amidst the greater theme of the price of progress in cities like Toronto and those it leaves behind, to Jen Sookfong Lee at ECW Press.

New Deal Reports!

Happy Friday! I’m thrilled to announce two deals:

  • The Quiet is Loud by Samantha Garner: Freya Tanangco, whose adult life has been spent in hiding from the troubled literary legacy created by her author father, and from the scrutiny of a society which subjects those with enhanced mental abilities to scorn and violence; when her prophetic dreams take a dangerous turn, she finds herself increasingly forced to sacrifice her own anonymity—and the fragile safety that comes with it—in order to protect those around her. Sold to Bryan Ibeas @ Invisible Publishing, for Fall 2021 publication.
  • Letters to Amelia, by Lindsay Zier-Vogel, in which Grace, a heartbroken 30-something library tech in Toronto, begins to piece her life back together by reading letters from and writing letters to Amelia Earhart, the famous pilot who disappeared over the Pacific Ocean in 1937. When Grace’s life takes another turn, she becomes consumed by Amelia’s final flight and begins excavating the pilot’s life to makes sense of her own. Sold to Bookhug, for Fall 2022 publication.

I’ll be helping to handle translation and other rights for these titles.

In the United States, over 32 million Americans have food allergies, including 18 million children under the age of 18. (Food Allergy Research & Education) In Canada, there are 2.6 million, including 500,000 children, who live with food allergies that need to be managed on a daily basis. (Food Allergy Canada). These numbers are increasing, but the amount and quality of resources to help cope has been scarce.

On Thursday May 30, join Amanda Orlando (author and creator of Everyday Allergen-Free) as she launches EVERYONE’S WELCOME: THE ART OF LIVING AND EATING ALLERGEN-FREE. There will be a discussion about the book and living with allergies, and samples from the cookbook. There will be books for sale, and a signing.

Details:
May 30, 7pm-8pm
Indigo Books (Bay Bloor)
55 Bloor Street East, Toronto, Ontario

Hope to see you there!
