It's National Down Syndrome Awareness Week (#NDSAW) in Canada (November 1-7). What do you know about it? While researching for her book, The Unfinished Child, author Theresa Shea learned a great deal about the condition. Pick up a copy today to see why the Canadian Down Syndrome Society called it: "A heart-wrenching and honest story. The exploration of the lives of those affected by Down syndrome is unexpected, well-researched, and hopeful."

Check out the Victoria Writers Festival this weekend (November 6-8) to catch authors Julie Paul and Aaron Shepard chat about what they know: short stories and writing the rural. Grab your tickets before they're out!

This fall, Brindle & Glass is all about stories. Check out our two new books, available September 30: Whatever Lola Wants by George Szanto, and The Pull of the Moon by Julie Paul.

The Coastal Spectator says that Julie Paul's new collection, The Pull of the Moon is "a sharp and quizzical look at human experience."

"Jessica [Kluthe's] writing is poetic and engaging ... she puts herself in the story with brave honesty. I felt for her in the struggle to overcome barriers of time and language in her search for her ancestors." —TheKoalaBearWriter, review of Rosina, the Midwife

"Modern short stories can be plotless, pretentious and downright irritating. This isn’t a problem with the work of [Julie] Paul, who writes insightful and entertaining stories, often with a West Coast connection. Her male central characters tend to be good men felled by grief. Her women can be loopy and fanciful. This new collection of 12 stories doesn’t disappoint." —The Toronto Star, review of The Pull of the Moon

Brindle & Glass is pleased to support All Lit Up, a new platform from the Literary Press Group that allows book lovers to discover, read, and collect CanLit.

We are thrilled to announce that the launch of Julie Paul's new collection, The Pull of the Moon, will by hosted by Munro's Books Sunday, September 28. Doors open at 7pm. You'd better be ready to enjoy yourself!
