Okay, so that was fun!

Thank you to all who joined author Anita Daher for the livestream launch of her most recent teen novel, You Don't Have to Die in the End, published by Yellow Dog, an imprint of Great Plains Publications.

Event hosted April 23rd by the National Arts Centre / Centre national des Arts

Eugenia Grimm is a tough girl living in a tough town at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. She drinks and fights and pushes against expectations. She is also hurting: after her father died by suicide, her older brothers drifted away and her mother up and left.

After a last-straw violent incident and faced with the possibility of incarceration, she is sentenced to time at an Intensive Support and Supervision Program located at a remote mountain ranch. There, she begins to make connections, explore difficult truths, and might even turn things around—until a series of events pull her into a dark spiral she may not have the strength to resist.

A novel about hope, healing and redemption.

“A provocative and compelling story that will leave you both emotionally raw, and satisfied.” — Eric Walters, author of Walking Home, The Rule of Three

(ps. sorry for the wonky lighting! Everything was framed for a Castr interface, which didn't work, so we quickly shifted to a backup plan!)
