Photos from the Launch for The Bite of the Mango

On October 27 at the Gladstone Hotel, authors Susan McClelland and Mariatu Kamara celebrated the launch of their book, The Bite of the Mango (Annick Press), a true story of a girl’s journey from victim of war to UNICEF Special Representative. On the Annick Press blog, Brigitte Waisberg writes about the launch:

Heralded by School Library Journal as “honest, raw and powerful,” The Bite of the Mango, in addition to being a memoir about lost childhood, suffering, and hope, is first and foremost a labour of love. That was readily apparent in the speech by Susan McClelland, who talked about hearing of Mariatu, then meeting her, and finally knowing that she had to tell her story.
