For release September 2014
In February 2013, Canadian spoken word artist Shane Koyczan grabbed global attention with his anti-bullying message in an animated video of his performance of To This Day on his YouTube channel as part of To This Day Project.
In a brilliant move, Annick Press will publish Shane Koyczan's work and added illustrations from 30 international visual artists. I look forward to reliving the passion of his words in this new format.

Maureen Fergus' Gypsy King trilogy will soon be completed with the publication of the final book, Tomorrow's Kingdom. Readers met Persephone and Azriel in The Gypsy King (Razorbill, 2012), the first book in this powerful high fantasy series. In its sequel, A Fool's Errand (Razorbill, 2013), Maureen Fergus eloquently lead readers to another cliffhanger. Only with the publication of Tomorrow's Kingdom will all be answered, I hope. But I have to warn you: the following trailer seems more like a teaser, since the book is still weeks away from release.
