Yesterday I attended a book launch at our public library. I have been waiting for this for a very long time. You see it was the book launch down here for my niece Melanie's first novel.
It only lasted an hour, but I finally managed to get my copy of her book signed.
Her book is about 2 women, one a Canadian and one a Ditka woman from South Sudan. Melanie spent almost 2 years in the Sudan researching her book and we think she did a bang up job of her first novel.
The title of her book is While the Sun is Above Us, and it will really open your eyes to the slavery and child soldier issues in the South Sudan.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
