New book on internment released

Best-selling YA and children's author Marsha Skrypuch just released her latest novel, Prisoners in the Promised Land.

The book is about a young Ukrainian immigrant girl who was sent to the Spirit Lake Internment Camp during WWI as an "enemy alien" along with her entire family.

The launch was held in Montreal, where a commemorative plaque was unveiled. A good writeup (before the event) was published in the Montreal Gazette (here).

If you haven't read any of Marsha's books yet, get thee to a bookstore now!
