Bustle magazine published a great little piece on the new YA anthology of short stories on adoption that Eric Smith is putting together, published by Jolly Fish next fall.

Shannon’s new short story “Salvation,” about a re-homed Haitian adoptee, is featured.



Shannon and fellow transracial adoptee author Rosita Gonzalez have rescheduled a reading and talk on transracial adoption in their work for Friday, November 4, 6:30 pm, at A Room of One’s Own bookstore in Madison.
