So Much Love by Rebecca Rosenblum
Husband and wife authors Mark Sampson and Rebecca Rosenblum will launch their new novels at the Confederation Centre Public Library in Charlottetown on June 29 at 6:30 pm. All are welcome.
Born and raised on PEI, Mark Sampson has just published his third novel, The Slip, with Dundurn Press. The book has already received advance praise from Publishers Weekly, Quill & Quire and Booklist, and it was named by Canadian librarians via their "Loan Stars" program as a top pick for the month of May. Mark is also the author of Sad Peninsula, which launched in Charlottetown in 2014, as well as a collection of poetry, Weathervane, and a collection of short stories, The Secrets Men Keep.
Rebecca Rosenblum’s debut novel, So Much Love (McClelland & Stewart, March 2017), has just been shortlisted for the $40,000 Amazon.ca/Walrus Foundation First Novel Prize, and recently received a starred review in the May issue of Quill & Quire. Rebecca is also the author of two critically acclaimed short story collections, Once (2008) and The Big Dream (2011), both from Biblioasis. She has won or been nominated for numerous other prizes, including the Metcalf-Rooke Award, the Journey Prize, the National Magazine Award, and the Danuta Gleed Literary Award.
Mark and Rebecca now live in Toronto.
