Our chapter published our first anthology (see below) in October 2012. We sold over 600 copies, paid our authors and donated over $800 to the Children's Book Bank with our efforts. It was also thrilling not only to have established authors like Edgar Award winner Sylvia Maultash Warsh, and novelist Vicki Delany in the collection, but we provided several authors with their first publication credit. Having the anthology reviewed in the Toronto Star was a highlight, too.
