Bearing Witness is on the "We Recommend" list at Toronto's The World's Biggest Bookstore!

And, 10 copies are now available in the Toronto Public Library.

We received a wonderful, heartwarming story from one of our contributing authors, Lesley Dasilva:

"I had forwarded a copy of Bearing Witness to my friend in Massachusetts last August. When I visited her a month later in September I had asked her if she read the book and she told me no. She has polyps and had been trying to conceive for a couple of years with no success. This same friend texted me last December letting me know she was pregnant. I made a joke saying that it was the book but I knew she hadn't read it and when I said that she corrected me and told me she had read it after I left. So in a matter of three months she got pregnant. I think the book helped calm her mind and open her up more fully to the feelings of empowerment that Bearing Witness so beautifully expressed. I think it's important for women to know they are more than what society or others perceive them to be...your work is critical and I am glad there will be two other books to remind us."
