Wanted to give you the heads up about TOMO: Friendship Through Fiction — An Anthology of Japan Teen Stories (Stone Bridge Press, March 2012), that was published just last week to benefit teens in the Tohoku region on Honshu, the area hardest hit by the 2011 earthquake/tsunami disaster.
There is a wonderful interview with Holly Thompson, editor of this incredible anthology, at Debtastic Reads. You can learn more about the project and the Japanese and international authors who contributed their stories for this wonderful charitable initiative, and enter for a chance to win a free copy by leaving a comment no later than March 16, 2012.
“Tomo” means ‘friend’ in Japanese, the perfect title for a book that was created to let teenagers in Japan know that we haven’t forgotten, and want to continue to support them as they rebuild their lives.
Click through, read the interview, enter the giveaway, purchase a copy for yourself or the teens in your life, and help spread the word through all your social networks! TOMO is available at your favorite online bookseller or directly through Stone Bridge Press.
Check out the TOMO blog for even more about all the contributors and the 36 stories in the anthology.
